Kelvingrove Museum: Monday 16 January (365.360° Day 195)
Kelvingrove Museum at night.
It took what seemed like ages for the clouds to break up a bit to give some definition between them and the night sky, but it was worth the wait in the end I think. As is so often the case, the clouds were pretty cool and moving perfectly for an approx. 15 – 20 sec exposure when I arrived at the location and while I set up but – somewhat predictably – as soon as I was ready the whole sky above the museums distinctive turrets was a big bank of cloud. Eventually they did clear and it was game on for six or seven exposures.
One final sting in the tail did rear its ugly head as I was walking back to the car – my ND filter fell onto the concrete car park and smashed in two. D’oh! An expensive accident. Oh well, worst things have happened – to be fair, the last thing I had smash on the ground was my face when I slipped on black ice in December – breaking three front teeth – so, in the grand scheme of things, a ruined filter ain’t so bad.Follow @RobJBC
