So last week I was in Stockholm for an astrophysics workshop titled “Lyman-alpha as an astrophysical tool“. I took plenty of pictures both during the meeting and in our free time. I still need to go through the whole set, but here goes just one of the pictures for the time being.

Let it Snow!

Ok, so I might end up regretting that title in a few minutes when I go to catch the S-bahn to get home, but anyway – here’s a snapshot of the view outside the office late this afternoon as the sun was beginning to set. Have a good evening, folks!

Sinking Rays

A picture from a while back which I’ve just realized I hadn’t uploaded. This one was taken in Port Meadow at sunset.

Sunset over St Aldates

Joseph/ September 9, 2012/ Uncategorized/ 2 comments

This picture was made from the Christ Church study room, during a break from thesis writing. The sun emerged for a while from behind the clouds and the street and its buildings briefly assumed a surreal character, one which I thought would lend itself quite nicely to a high-dynamic-range (HDR) image. Five frames (two bracketed either side of the average

Port Meadow

Joseph/ August 21, 2012/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

In between thesis writing and data analysis, I’m trying to make a little bit of time for photography when the weather is nice… you know, to keep my mental faculties sane, if for nothing else. So this afternoon, upon leaving the department and noticing that there wasn’t a single cloud in the sky (you’ve got to be an Oxford local

The decisions one has to make. . . for a picture.

So… how do I even begin to tell the story behind this picture? Well, I think I’ll take the short route. It was a nice afternoon, so I went out to Port meadow for a walk, camera in hand. The locals were around, happily mooing and chewing away. But then one of them strayed from the herd and went to

Silhouetted Tree Addiction

Joseph/ March 1, 2012/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

Yes, you got it. It seems like I’m currently addicted to this kind of scenery. The thing is that this sort of imagery evokes in me such serenity that it’s hard to resist posting. Enjoy the explosion of colours!

Sunset Trees

Well, yesterday the late afternoon light was beckoning and the scene slowly turned into this. Have a good start to the week!

Just over a year later…

Joseph/ February 4, 2012/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

I can hardly believe that a whole year has passed since I created this photography blog. Well here we are, 89 posts and over 300 pictures later. (You can view my first ever blog post here.) I had little idea then how many thousands of people from all walks of life would visit this blog over the ensuing weeks &

Mgarr Harbour

Here is a picture of a very calming scene, one of those which I miss whenever I leave this place. This photo shows my village of Ghajnsielem at sunset. More specifically, it shows Mgarr Harbour, as one of the ferries leaves Gozo for the island of Malta.

Sunset Wish

This is precisely what I need right now. But since I’m tied to my desk, I’ll have to do with a picture. (This was taken a while back in Noordwijk in the Netherlands.)

Riding at Sunset

Joseph/ June 15, 2011/ Uncategorized/ 1 comments

Today’s picture takes us back to Noordwijk in the Netherlands. After a day-long meeting at the European Space Agency we headed out for dinner at a lovely restaurant overlooking the beach. I confess I was considerably distracted from my food all the time, as I watched the sun slowly setting beyond the horizon. Then, when least expected, three horses came

Hello from the Netherlands! As you’ll have worked out from that greeting message, I’m away from Oxford right now, having hopped over to the Netherlands to attend a meeting at ESA ESTEC in lovely Noorwijk. And here is a snapshot of the beach in Noordwijk. You will most definitely be seeing more pictures from this trip!

Eternal peace.

Joseph/ April 20, 2011/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

This place keeps drawing me to it. It is a site which I’ve photographed countless times before, yet every time feels like my first time. It possesses a beauty and timelessness which conveys to me a sense of peace like no other place. So yesterday I went along with all the kit hoping to get a new angle on it.

Fiery skies.

Sometimes you look in old folders on your computer and come across pictures which you had taken and eventually completely forgotten about. And when that happens, you can’t help but ask yourself why you didn’t upload that picture before. Here is a picture from a couple of weeks ago which I think has enough merit to be uploaded. It reminds

Rowing in February.

Joseph/ February 13, 2011/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

This is another snap from yesterday. It’s quite unusual to have such beautiful weather in February (case in point, the awful weather we have today!) and the sight of swift rowing boats on the river at sunset was quite exhilarating. I sincerely hope that all those of you who were around in Oxford yesterday managed to enjoy the fabulous weather!

The last sunset of the week.

Joseph/ January 31, 2011/ Uncategorized/ 4 comments

Today (well, actually yesterday since it’s half past one in the morning now) was the first day when I finally went out again, after a whole week of being bogged down by a cold. I met two nice friends of mine as I was walking out of college with my camera and decided to join them for a stroll in

Lighting up the darkness.

Joseph/ January 28, 2011/ Uncategorized/ 1 comments

It’s somewhat funny that my second posted picture should have been taken on the same day as the first. But then again, when one is at home with a cold, picture-taking opportunities are somehow limited, aren’t they? Anyway, back to the picture. I have a fascination with that time of day when light gives way to darkness, not because of

My first post… ever.

Joseph/ January 27, 2011/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

Right, here I am. After much putting off, I’ve finally pressed on and created my own blog, where I shall be documenting what I see through my third eye – otherwise known as my camera. My hope is to update this blog fairly regularly and to offer an insight into what I find interesting around me. This blog is meant
