Those astro pics bring back some great memories Conor, especially that one with the scopes 'Alfie' and 'T7' during one of those many all night observing sessions. The shot from the North coast is great, that was one proper dark night!. Good to see these again  Smiley

I can see we're in for some treats in this section. That's a lovely pic. of the child. and a funny one of the cow.' Oh, it's probably a bull with that ring and I see it had a tag in it's ear too,poor soul. I found the grave yard a bit sinister for my taste but a good idea.

Mr. wasp..."Oi.. what you doing there with that pointy thing , you're not photographing me are you ? Lol.

Like the last one - star gazing - once again, just like the NLC's  makes me feel I'm there so keep these  'self'- portrait' photos coming.

Yea it was a class night martin, bagged aurora, amazing milky-way and it was so peaceful, must got there again! Thanks for the comments john, im glad you like the self portrait shots, they do give more of a story to the pic and you can place yourself in the scene alot more easily.
