A Starry Night at Malham Tarn

A 2am start paid off to get to Malham Tarn for 3:30am. The lake was dead calm and looked like a sheet of glass in the star light. I was hoping to get capture the galactic centre however there was a bit of light pollution from Greater Manchester on the southern horizon.

January in the Highlands: Milky Way over Gleann na Guiserein

After walking from Inverie over to Inverguseran I got a lift back with Ian and Will. The stars were so good we decided to turn round half way and head back to the farm house to grab a tripod! I took this shot looking East towards Sgurr Coire Choinnichean and Ladhar Beinn. The shot is a single 30 second exposure taken with a 15mm fish eye. The Land Rover lights were switched on for about 5 seconds and flood light 2 seconds.
