All about patience

Photography is all about patience.

Having got the bug for astrophotography with the visit of Comet Neowise, I have been waiting for the right conditions to photograph the Milky Way. This has proved incredibly frustrating trying to get the right conditions and being a novice, there is a need to experiment and practice the processes of gaining a suitable image and then, how to process it.
There have been several false starts, where the weather forecast promised but on the day, the weather didn't want to play ball.

Last night, the forecast was good so I headed off to the nearby headland of Rame Head.
This time, the weather did provide the clear skies BUT I still was thwarted, this time by a small fishing boat of all things which sat just off the headland with a green light displayed.

This was the shot I had in mind


A crop version but the spread of the green light can still be seen and the real downside is that the headland rocks are clipped.

I would be very pleased to have seen this scene and photographed it. I agree it's a shame about the fishing boat. But it was there so Ipersonally would live with it. May I suggest that the bigger issue is the bright white lights on the horizon, toning those down should give more emphasis to the Milky Way.
