Friday Islay Picture #261 - Stars over Kilchoman House Cottages

Friday Islay Picture in stencil

After yesterdays three pictures of the Peregrine Falcon vs Raven another picture from Kilchoman. Very different subject though, gazing into the night sky over Islay. I think I mentioned that I didn't get a chance to do more star trails over Islay as there were too many clouds passing. I did still get the chance for a few night shot experiments like this one:

As I was the only guest at Kilchoman House Cottages last week we switched the outside lights off, which allowed me to take slightly different pictures. For this one I used a 25 second exposure, for the last 10-15 seconds I quickly walked along the cottages with a small torch (you can actually see a short light trail from the torch on the right where I had walked into the field of view).

I hope you like the results, as usual I'll post a larger version of it on the Islay Pictures photoblog on Saturday morning. Unfortunately it probably won't be there for long, but that's another story, may be for tomorrow…

Sharing and discussing. Opening up the discussion. Have your say:
