Symonds Yat, Stars and Castles

A lovely weekend break with the family but also a chance to take photos of new places.

It's been over 30 years since I've been to Symonds Yat but I always remembered the river and the gorge itself but forgot about the beautiful views from Symonds Yat Rock.  A truly lovely part of the world!!



We stayed in the Forest of Dean which and were very lucky to have clear nights and as there is very light pollution, the stars we could see were fantastic. Solid tripod, 16mm lens @ f2.8, iso around 1000 and shutter speed around 7 seconds gave some lovely night time shots:



On the way home we popped in to Raglan Castle, one of my favourite Welsh castles and as we were the only visitors there for most of our time, we pretty much had it to ourselves!!
