Midnight at the Pigeonhole west season camp

During the past week I was lucky enough to spend the night at Pigeonhole, a small Aboriginal township in the Victoria River district nestled on the banks of the might Victoria River about 800 or so kilometres south-west of Darwin in the Northern Territory.

It was a clear moonless – and cold – night and I dragged my trusty camera and tripod out and took a few shots of the brilliant night sky from my campsite at the local airstrip.

Here they are – I hope you like them…

Milky way and tree. Pigeonhole, NT.
A slice of night light...with Southern Cross

Another slice of a cold night sky from Pigeonhole...
