Hound Tor Lightburst

By mattw    
This was taken after a astro photography workshop up on Dartmoor. We had a great time shooting the Milky Way from the top of Hound Tor. Eventually fog rose up from the valley and ended play.
We packed up, walked back to the cars, and were just chatting away before heading home, when a car drove past - the headlights creating stunning patterns as the beams shone through the fog and trees.
I had an idea - and quickly popped my torch behind this lone Hawthorn tree. The light beams were just insane, casting dramatic shadows right across the sky - We just had to get the cameras back out and enjoy a cheeky extra shoot!

Your idea, helped by the car headlights, worked out brilliant.
