Moonlight_on_Hatfield_Forest_Lake

I’ve been keen to shoot the stars and I had some limited success with this but the moon coming up over the lake at Hatfield Forest was quite beautiful.

It’s amazingly quiet in the forest at this time of night…except for the roar of the jet engines and smell of aviation fuel that drifts across to you from a mile or so away – it was a surprisingly strong smell. It’s a smell I love though as it reminds me of holidays taken ion the Isle of Tresco when I was a young boy – we used to take the helicopter over from Penzance to St Mary’s and that smell of aviation fuel always meant that we were nearly there.
