Took this image last week during the middle of the night from the very top of Slieve Gallion while hunting for aurora/NLC locations with Conor. A warm front was moving in, ahead of it was this large fog bank which formed over the 'urban island' of lights belonging to Magherafelt (?), image is looking E as the bank approached. Time exposure at ISO800 using live view to get focused. Looked like a great scene visually at the time.

Double yikes!! My first thought was the same as Paul's, looks like a mini version of Los Angeles as viewed from Griffith Park or Mt. Wison Observatories! Great shot though Martin.
