This is a night time shot at Dunstanburgh Castle on the North East coast of England in Northumberland. It is the best I managed on my first astrophotography attempt. I will get better.

You're welcome.  I just love the blues of the sky and the silhouette of the castle.  Very dreamlike quality.

Yes, it was a good week. Cold and clear and dry. Since then it has been cloudy, rainy and boring. 
It was good fun though so we have to get you a tripod as you will need it. :hug:

It's been the same up here in the North :( So I've been finding it difficult to use my film camera for college work. 

Hopefully I'll be living in London come September! I just can't wait to go back and visit Camden market :D
