This year I was honored and very proud to have been an award winner in the section called Solar System - Wide Field for my collage of images from the magnificent Annular Solar Eclipse that happened on the 10th May at Banka Banka Station in the Northern Territory in central Australia.
All the winning images have been beautifully framed and one full set will remain at the Parkes Radio Telescope visitor centre and the other full set will travel around Australia to all the different science centers and observatories for the public to view and enjoy.
Thank you to all the members of the CWAS especially John Sarkissian for his dedication in making this the premier astronomical photography event in Australia. Thank you also to Canon for my lovely prize of a Canon S110 camera.
Please find below some images from the presentation evening on the 13th of July and at the opening of the exhibition at the Parkes Radio Telescope on Sunday the 14th July. I am very happy and proud to be part of this amazing exhibition and I’m sure everyone who sees our images will be truly stunned at the awesome beauty of the universe that we all live in :-)
