Robin Hood’s Stride at night

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Trails of stars above the natural rock formation of Robin Hood’s Stride. According to legend Robin Hood was able to stride from one to the other of the two highest rocks.
The orange colour is light pollution from sodium street lamps, mainly from Matlock which lies to the southeast. The most obvious constellation is that of Orion which is just setting to the right of Robin Hood’s Stride.
