High Cross under the Milky Way

High Cross under the Milky Way

At midnight the other night, I packed the car & went out to view & image the night sky. The fact that there was no clouds in the sky was quite unusual of late, but for there to be no moon either, I had to head out. I went to the nearby Monasterboice dolmen & ended up at the high crosses at Monasterboice. This image was taken about 2am, on my way back home. Was I mad? - probably, but did I enjoy the trip? - absolutely.
