Some recent images - 11th May

Heres a selection of some shots from recent weeks

A friend and i had some fun shooting around this old cottage one clear night back in April

We experimented with various lighting techniques using flashes and torches and the moon was also quite bright. I really like the effect of the clouds in the first during the 30 second exposure. I then decided to set up for a star-trail from a different angle but after 30 or so shots the clouds rolled in and cut it short, ive posted the result anyway.

Met up with Martin McKenna for a night shoot in mid April and we headed to one of our favourite locations - the north coast. We had star-trail images in mind and hit the Giants Causeway and Dunluce Castle. The moon was 4-5 days from full so it worked a treat in lighting up the foregrounds for us. I still have a Dunluce trail to work on and will add it here too.
