  1. Saw the forecast and had to head out, i rang a friend of mine who is also in to shooting WF astro and i had been telling him about this place for the past 12 months. I have never been to this spot but ive been to the area plenty of times. As we where taking a break from shooting star trails Snowdonia dark sky reserve turned up. got chatting to them and they confirmed that this spot is the darkest place in wales ? just working through some images but the sky was incredible last night.

  2. I've not done any serious WF work for a while so i went back to this and done a re edit. Now i know my way around PS alot more i would love to get back into this type of WF. going to be looking for a rig again soon
  3. yeah Dave just like Penmon cafe ? i wish other people would realize this in stead of trying to light paint the bloody thing
  4. No Dave this is sharper than the BATIS. This is the AF version but i really wanted the MF but no where had them in stock and i really wanted one. i got this one at a good price though £600. The light on the front of the LH is ambient light from the caravan site just behind the beach. no additional light was added.
  5. Thanks Jeremy next time will be with my new 20mm F2 Tokina I love it there Andy and the kids do too. i must visit 3-5 times a month.
  6. A quick trip after work on Thursday to Talacre North Wale to do a reccy more than anything. While i was there i set up the camera and let if running for a bit. 20 x 2.5 mins ISO 500 F6.3 Sony A7RII ZEISS 24-70mm Talacre Trails by Danny Kenealy, on Flickr

  8. sorry guys im going to have to pull out, its a long drive for the weather thats forecast so im heading North to where there are clear sky's foretasted and maybe some aurora . wish you all well and hopefully next time i can be there.
  9. i can confirm i will be + 1 how much do i need to pay and where
  10. Delamere isn't too bad if you don't mind a trip to talacre beach that's alright too. Other than that it's north Wales Which is the best place to go.
  11. Its just works well with the figure, without it i dont think it works.
  12. i spent a few hours last week at Penmon point waiting for lady Aurora as it seemed to kicking off the night before. sadly the BZ was north most of the night and very little happened and the shot i got with the Aurora in was very week. so this is the best i managed from that night while waiting for the clouds to clear.
