There has not been a cloud in the sky over Diss the past week as the sun has shined down.

But as the evening draws in this has allowed a Diss photographer to capture some amazing shots of the night sky as the stars twinkled.

Freelance photographer Jeordy Lawrence was able to capture the stars using a special type of photography called astrophotography.

Astrophotography is created using a camera with full manual settings. The camera is set up to take anywhere from 10 seconds to two minutes to expose, and that amount of time correlates to how long the shutter is open, allowing more light to hit the sensor.

Mr Lawrence said: “I used the same technique as with other photos I have taken around Diss.

“In the one with the planets labelled I combined two images in post-preduction, and the other one I used my new 50mm lens.”

Mr Lawrence wis now looking forward to what other areas in Diss he can capture.
