Elgol by night. I went to Elgol on the last night on Skye with the intention to shoot some more star trails. However, it clouded over. All week the moon had been up when it first went dark so the stars were not that visible, but on the last night we had a couple of hours moon free and I was amazed all over again by the amount of stars you can see. This was actually a shot to get my composition correct for trails but I knew it may make a picture in itself. The rock on the right is the famous overhanging cliff, lit quite yellow by the sole street lamp behind. Portree's light pollution can be seen in the distance and I'm not sure if the green is aurora or not...it wasn't visible with the naked eye and wasn't forecast but I've seen another image a night later saying it was aurora...guesses?
