Picture of a starry night sky over a row of cottagesA beautiful welcome to Islay in early November 2018. I had arrived on the island about an hour before I took this picture. After driving over from Port Ellen I noticed the beautiful night sky above. I quickly finished unpacking the car (my tripod was at the very bottom of my luggage…) and just before clouds moved in (you can see some sneaking in on the right) I managed to get a few shots of the cottages and the church/cross.

After a full moon night a large number of Barnacle Geese had been roosting on the beach, here they can be seen lifting off after having been spooked.
