Description

I've had fun processing this image, especially as I am using only my lefty hand to control the mouse on my mac whilst using PI as my dominant right hand is throbbing in its plaster cast after fracturing my wrist. A friend helped make a couple of adjustments to my reducer - thanks Mohamed - and gave me encouragement when I have felt down in the dumps from my stupid slip in the garden. The fascinating 'beam' of OIII made us both think of a cosmic torchlight searching in the darkness.
