Back At Llyn Tegid

I’ve recently come back from another few days at Llyn Tegid (AKA Lake Bala) and was lucky enough to have a clear night on Thursday night. As last time, the Milky Way was very visible to the naked eye which means a DSLR would have a great view!

Here’s a couple of shots I got. It’s a shame the cloud started to come back in on the shot over the lake but didn’t spoil it too much. Night photography is still very much a learning exercise for me and I’ve got a little more practice before I get these perfect.

The first shot, over the lake, you can almost make out the spiral shape of Andromeda, its the bright spot near the top right.

On the 2nd shot (the one above the tree) you can see a shooting star and 2 satellites. The shooting star and one of the satellites is easy to see. The 2nd satellite takes a little finding.
