Summer is here with clear skies!

 

 

Summer is here and it’s the best time to view the Milky way in the UK. Luckily we have been blessed with some brilliant clear skies.

 

Penmon Point, Anglesey.

The weather again was looking good for an evening at Aled Isaf with the tent. A few shots from here.

Me and my wife Laura headed over to Madeira  for our summer holiday and took advantage of a sunset and stargazing excursion. Unfortunately it was a full moon so the Milky way wasn’t as visible but the views were amazing. Sitting at 1818 meters, Pico Arieiro is the highest peak on the island and you sit above the clouds. I’d love to go back there on a moonless night!

Took a drive over the moors home and thought I’d try this shot. I’d seen a few previously from America and thought this worked pretty well.

And one from the other night. The ISS pass. Taken behind Abergele at an old lookout tower. 6 shots stitched together.

Cheers for looking!
