After about eight years "hard studying" my good old friend René is finally through with his studies. He'll get his degree on the 14th of December.
Besides being a fully qualified astronomer he's also a quite phenomenal photographer.
He made one of the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen. The picture below portrays a couple of mummified spiders in a cellar somewhere in France, photographed with a red filter and turned upside down for dramatic effect. Not unlike the Star Wars scene where the Millennium Falcon soars through a gutter in the Death Star.
I'll ask his permission to post high resolution versions of the entire series.
Here's to René.
