Night over Ballinskelligs

The plough

Waterville lights

Ballinskelligs castle at night

Just before the camera club meeting tonight I´ve taken a few photos of the scenery and sky over Ballinskeligs. The half moon was brightening up the clouds and landscape and the stars were very well to see. I took the photos with iso200 and 400, f 1.8 to 2.2 with a shutterspeed of 25 seconds in manual settings. You need to focus manual to infinity and a sturdy tripod is great help, try it  in the next few nights, but stay away from the moon, its to bright.                                        South Kerry is a great location for night photography due to its minor light pollution.
