Took these for fun last night from the Glenshane Pass during a severe frost as Arctic air moved in. The clouds looked amazing lit by the bright gibbous Moon so I took some exposures. The distant cu dropped snow over W and NE areas later, the cirrus looked amazing blown across the moonlit sky with stars.

All great shots Martin. I really like the last one with the stars peeking through the cirrus and the lone four trees on the hilltop, it really gives the effect of a much larger landscape.

These are fantastic Martin, you can almost feel how cold it is through your photographs. Love the cloud movement in the last one Smiley

Thanks very much everyone, do you see the house among those trees Richard?, I wouldn't like to be living in that, probably one of the most exposed and bitter places to be lol, the owner must get ravaged by gales and blocked by snow.

I didn't see the house until you said there was one, but it sticks out like a sore thumb now, kind of hard to miss when you know it's there. Hopefully the house is built on the leeward side of the trees and they're not deciduous, you would probably know that.

Yes he's well protected among those trees, but I still wouldn't like to live there, the temps and winds up there are outrageous, he must really love being close to nature, or else he likes the solitude, can't blame him in a way  Smiley
