My name is Mike Salway and I’m an amateur astronomer and photographer.

I’m the co-founder of the Amateur Astronomy community site, IceInSpace, and my personal blog site and image gallery is at

I love high resolution planetary imaging and deep-space imaging using a telescope, and I love capturing wide field vistas that involve a lovely foreground scene combined with astronomical interest in the sky.

    Can’t believe I didn’t have you on my watchlist til now Mike! This is a real cracker, that golden light is so stunning and the motion of the water coupled with the light reflecting off the rocks. A beautiful time of day well captured :)
