Elgol Night Sky

By jamesgrant      
The Isle of Skye is an amazing place to see the night sky, when it's clear that is!..I was fortunate enough to be on Skye with such conditions for a second time...I had previously taken a shot of Elgol with the night sky beyond and to be honest I knew it would be hard to beat due to the amount of astrological interest in the sky that night. However, this time I came equipped with a full-frame camera...So, I went back to Elgol and had to grab a few shots before the moon started to rise. The view North to the Milky Way was pretty special and there was so much detail in the stars. Unfortunately the tide was really high, otherwise I may have chose a different composition rather than something similar to my previous shot...It's quite amazing that one small sodium light in Elgol casts such a horrid glow on the sandstone rock and as such I had to desaturate it quite a bit.
