That was a difficult challenge. It took me longer to think what to enter than it did to drive out and get the shot ! 

It was pure good fortune that the sky decided to play sunsets at midnight :)

Thanks again to Danny who gives us wide-field starscapers inspiration week in and week out and to Inlarxg. If that's your back garden mate then you really do have inspirational skies !

Thanks to all the other imagers who entered. There are a couple of ideas you've given me for the future and finally cheers SGL,

Dave

Thanks Sara,

Considering that road across the reservoir is a main road to Sheffield, it's a lot quieter than you might imagine. A nice area to walk in too,

Dave

Brilliant images - Knowing the exact spots of first and second-placed images makes me want to get out there! Well done to all prizewinners.

I've received my mug and it's way better than I imagined ! Very colourful and shiny :)

As there don't seem to be many mugs ( ! ) on display I thought I'd let everyone see what they look like with a short timelapse shot with a Sony RX-100 and with the mug sat on a Skywatcher Star Adventurer.

Thanks to everyone involved with the prize and to FLO for making it available.

Cheers,

Dave.

It doesn't appear as if it wants to play ! Ah well, that fell flat then 🙄

Can you see the video ? It doesn't show for me at all. In fact I can't delete the video now to start again :)

I'd need help drinking from the mug ! Straw anyone ?
