Star Gazing, Glastonbury Tor

In March 2012, Venus and Jupiter, the two brightest planets, formed a striking conjunction in the sky. From the summit of Glastonbury Tor, I composed this image with St Michael's Tower in the centre, the two planets on the right and the constellation of Orion on the left. A thirty second exposure at ISO 2000 recorded the stars as points and I used a torch to illuminate the tower. The silhouetted figure of another visitor who happened to stand in the tower doorway without moving for the whole 30 seconds completed the scene.

F/5, 30 seconds, ISO 2000
Accepted: Welsh (2012), Swansea (2012), Oxford (2013), Southampton (2013)
