Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2013

Being a newcomer to night photography, I had absolutely no expectations when I entered a few images into the 2013 Astronomy Photographer of the Year Competition, organised by the Royal Observatory, Greenwich. To my surprise and delight, one of my images made the shortlist and although I may not have won, it was certainly a honour being in the mix with photographers such as Ben Canales and Luis Argerich who inspired me to try night photography in the first place. I'm pleased to say that my short listed image has been published in the Astronomy Photographer of the Year book, a beautiful hard cover book published by Collins and available from the Royal Observatory Greenwich website, Amazon and other good resellers.
