I live in The Netherlands and I have two hobby’s:
1) taking photos of the Duck-billed Platypus playing poker with Polar Icebears.
2) astrophotography in my backyard with clear skies.
This year I have had more luck with hobby nr 1 than that I had with nr 2.
I’m seriously thinking of giving up on astrophotography. This country is such a lousy place to live in when it comes to weather and clouds.
