What nights are like in the North

Hi guys,

with summer fading and days getting shorter we thought this was going to be the perfect opportunity to shoot some more night skies. For night-sky photography it's high season, with evenings still being mild and lush, but cloudless and pitch black right after 10pm. Our house was pretty close to the sea and an old pier, far away from cities and streetlights. Initially we brought a torch to brighten up the foreground but we ended up just experimenting with the light, pointing it in various directions to see how it works out in the photo. Great fun, highly recommended photo experiment for September and October.
