Shooting star & Milky Way over Melifont

Shooting star & Milky Way over Melifont

Another shot from Sunday evening.

This time I took at shot of the ruins of Melifont Abbey with the Milky Way in the background. I used a speedlight to light up the old abbey as it would have been a silhouette otherwise. I was thrilled to find a shooting star cutting through the image when I got home later in the evening.
