Quite an amazing shot: my immediate reaction was what a lovely sunny afternoon until I saw the star trails, the lack of expected shadows and the smooth seas. I have never tried anything like this but shall have to keep it in mind. I just wonder how you decided on how long the exposure should be....you seem to have got it just spot on.

I am looking at this, and think... someone lived here once, loved here once, longed to be with someone, dreamt going out to sea... Beautiful airy nostalgic photo. Absolutely gorgeous moonlight shot, with 40min exposure. Krystal

An original take on a well-photographed location. I was there myself a couple of days ago, but didn't get anything like this!

Its subtle but apart from the stars the light has a slightly alien appearance.

Nice one Matt, the moon has been hidden behind cloud or fog round here for the last week. The good thing about the full moon is it lights up the landscape but the sky brightness loses you the fainter stars.
