Approximate 90 sec exposure hence the star trails.

Thanks to all.
This was taken at Flamborough shortly before midnight on 7th November 2009. It was something I'd wanted to try for a while but wasn't sure how it would go and whether the long drive from home was worth it. Anyway, after weeks of deliberating and being persuaded by my brother, I drove four hours and spent another four on the beach to get this shot along with a dozen or so others. It was lit solely by moon light (about 3/4 full), the lighthouse and a small LED battery powered headlamp with which I created the blue tinge on the rocks in the foreground.
