Car under the Milky Way night sky, Isle of Islay

Picture of a Mini Clubman stopped on a country road under the Milky Way night skyA brief clear moment at night during my Islay visit in November 2017. On my way back to the cottage at Kilchoman I had spotted that it had cleared up, so I had stopped to admire the night sky and if possible take a few pictures. I had stopped on the highest point of the road a few hundred yards past Foreland, just before the road turns left. As I could see clouds rapidly approaching from the west I didn’t have time to drive anywhere else for an interesting background and I couldn’t really get the landscape to work where I had stopped. Then my eyes fell on my car and a decision was made. This is the result.
