The clearest night I have seen for a long time afforded me the opportunity to take a few shots of the Spiral Arm of the Milky Way last month during the Pilides Metoer shower.
I have left the metadata on this picture incase any of want to have a go at something similar.
Taken from the tip of the Llyn Peninsular in North Wales overlooking Bardsay Island - the bright spot of light at the bottom of the frame is the Lighthouse on the island.
