First attempt at star photography

After months of scrolling through beautiful photos of the Milky Way in Dorset on Instagram, I thought it was time to get out there myself and give it a go.

We headed off to Lulworth Cove on Tuesday evening for a little walk, with fingers crossed for some nice skies as the sun set. Unfortunately there were too … Continue reading Lulworth Cove at sunset
