Stonehenge at night

Been a while since I hooked up with my friend Dean so when he mentioned being in the area on Friday night I couldn't say no, especially once I'd seen the clear sky.

 

Fifth time for me at Stonehenge but Dean's first shoot there. Couldn't have asked for better conditions - although minus 6.5ºC is pushing it when it comes to a price worth paying.

 

With a waning gibbous moon shining bright from the left the sky was rendered a lovely deep blue colour and the shadows on most of the stones were filled in just right.

 

Multiple exposures at ISO500 and f/2.8 stacked in StarStaX
