Things to do when you’re ill
Sleep. Very nice. What was nicer was waking up in time to go and look for Comet McNaught and actually finding it in time, although I missed out on a better photograph due to running home to get my camera gear and the kids into their wellies to come and see it with me.
Colours are messed up (it was a nicer orange/blue sky) as I have attacked the image in Adobe Camera Raw to enhance the tail as much as possible (although you’ll have to trust me that I didn’t use an airbrush to really ‘improve’ it).
Shot on a Canon EOS 350D at 800ASA, 55-200mm lens at 200mm, f8 and 2s exposure.
