Beautiful with the stars and clouds mixed.

Hi Spence,

I'm starting to warm to the idea of shooting at night when there is a little cloud about, (not too much though) :) I think it adds a bit of contrast to the scene.

Cheers mate..... Steve

Stunning :)

'Master of Night Shots'..... that's a real compliment coming from you Jack :) I'd better go now while I can still fit through the door :)

In truth, I've still got a long long way to go and I'm learning something new every time I go out..... but thanks for the vote of confidence.

The light on the bushes comes from a small yellow security light mounted on the building opposite. You can barely see it normally but the long exposure really brings it out.

Many thanks.....

Hi Drew Many thanks to you also mate..... The appreciation I receive from you guys spurs me on to go out and get these shots.

Cheers.... Steve
