    The Smoke of Creation.

    The Smoke of Creation.

    I took a couple of days out on the Llyn Peninsula this week and though the conditions in the day were not too inspiring I did get this night shot that was a bit better.

    Very nice Wayland,

    Can I ask whether that's natural light on the building?

    I'm thinking 'probably not', if that's the case, what is it?

    Thanks in advance,

    I'm glad you like it.

    It's moonlight coming in from the North East Dave, there was a low half Moon rising over to my left and I was shooting almost due South.

    It's one of those rare times when a title came to mind as I was actually taking the picture.

    Usually I would just use the geographical details but the Earthly location just seemed insignificant somehow.

    Thank you, it was just a matter of standing in the right place as someone once said.

    Thank you Nandakumar.

    You must get some interesting skies over your way. I'm told the Southern sky is quite spectacular.

    Had another go at getting the Milky Way at my local observatory.

    The Smoke of Creation.

    I was hoping for a bit more darkness but the sky clouded over shortly after this.
