Winter Sky

Orion, Sirius and Pleiades over Martinsell Hill in Wiltshire on a winter evening. I timed my arrival to coincide with moonrise and as the gibbous moon rose above mist in the Vale of Pewsey behind me, it bathed the Scots Pine in soft, cold light. Less welcome was brisk wind during my 20 second exposure, which has caused a little motion blur in the pine branches.
