Above us only sky

My favourite shot from the shores of Llyn y Dywarchen on Saturday night. I deliberated for a while about a crop for this one, as obviously the horizon being center isn't "rule of thirds" friendly, but tbh It feels a lot more balanced this way than any other way I could change it, so I've left it.

I particularly like the stars reflected in the lake here as well.

    Its a great shot, I would have preferred it with a lower iso than 800 to reduce the amount of noise. but then again you would have needed a 24min exposure using iso 200 and then you get noise from hot pixels instead and you see the trails of the stars.

    Either way its a great photo.
