With astronomical darkness getting less and less approaching summer solstais I am restricted to a small 2-3 hour window in the early morning. I was really keen to do a traffic trail of the boats going up and down the sound of Mull and my first image captures that with the motion of the stars above...
|Dusk to Darkness time lapse...boat traffic and star trail|
Another star trail below while an aurora borealis was buffering and more boat traffic in motion...
|Another star trail with Aurora Borealis|

Another night shift on the 17th and had to stake it until 1am for good darkness but the setting moon over the sea looked stunning. A Cuckoo calling at 0146 to be precise! And a Skylark after 2. Tawnys calling throughout the night.

I did a few seascapes on the north end of the isle with a moderate north wind creating rough seas coming in. 3 Mountain Hares feeding on the exposed tide and a huge Dog Otter ran right past me when I was hunched over my tripod. Turnstone and Ringed Plover on the shore.

Thanks for looking :)
