Thought I would add a few on here, I took too many to post, one can get carried away at times. Conor and I had a fabulous night, we learned one thing though - sometimes the moon can be too bright and ruin the potential, in this case it made the images look like day time even with short exposures and the stars where few in number so we didn't get the impact we wanted, however the experience of being on the rocks and near Dunluce Castle under the bright eerie moon was amazing, it felt like another world, truly magical. We will definitely return on a dark starry night. One thing is for certain, the compass points are perfect, any auroras, NLCs, or night storms are directly in line with the Castle and other interesting locations. So in a nutshell, this place has great potential.
