This image was captured several weeks ago on what was possibly my last Milky Way Core shoot of 2020.

2020 has not afforded many Milky Way sessions, mainly either because clear nights falling on the wrong moon cycles or more notably due to the Covid19 lock-down restrictions that were imposed back in March. So needless to say, that I was super excited to be back out under the stars and the night sky again.

This location certainly had a bit of eeriness about it. Standing out on location under the dark of the night sky and surrounded by rustling bushes, horses/cattle making noises and other weird random noises all made for an unsettling experience on one hand. But that unsettling feeling was totally trumped by the sense of pure awe of both standing there next to these old castle ruins that have stood the test of time from when they were first erected during more ancient times here in Ireland as well standing under the ancient lights of the Milky Way galaxy above.

This image was captured several weeks ago down at Goat Island near Ardmore in County Waterford, Ireland.

Was glad to be back out under the stars and the night sky again. Last Milky Way shoot was back on March 29th 2020.

Although the Milky Way core was drifting and setting into the light pollution coming from Youghal on the east coast of County Cork, I was still happy with the overall lighting and feel of the image.

When you can't avoid light pollution, you simply have to work with it and incorporate it as best as you can.

First sunrise in a long time, somewhat caused by the whole Covid debacle but more likely due to my hatred of climbing out of bed early.

Where else to venture for my first sunrise attempt in ages to the always interesting, beautiful and close to home location that is Ballycotton along the east coast of County Cork, Ireland.

Spent a great morning there with another photographer and friend of mine. The light was fleeting to be fair on that morning. It was mostly cloudy and looked like there was going to be no chance of any colour bursting through but then a raincloud came along and changed all that.

A few minutes of great light but that is all that is needed.

2020 has undoubtedly been the strangest year of my lifetime, what with all the lockdowns and all that stuff. My photography projects have been pretty much halted as a result and honestly I don't see a whole lot of new works being produced and released during the rest of 2020. However, this image was actually from my last shoot this year, which was back in March on the night when the lockdowns came into force.

Thankfully I was able to get out and enjoy the tranquility, isolation and beauty of the night sky on that night before having my photography projects postponed for the next while.

This image was captured at Rocky Bay, County Cork, Ireland.

At the start of March 2020 while we were still in the "new moon" phase, I ventured down to Benvoy beach within the Copper Coast Geopark in County Waterford, Ireland in order to spend some more time admiring the stars above us.

This was only my 2nd astrophotography shoot of 2020 but I am now finding myself wondering when I will get another opportunity to shoot the stars. The annual opportunities are few in number under normal circumstances here in Ireland on account of cloudy weather patterns but with the onset of the Covid19 pandemic and lockdown restrictions of movement of people, it could be some time before an opportunity arises again.

However, instead of dwelling on negativity, I instead prefer and choose to look forward to that next opportunity with an eager optimism and anticipation of what glorious images it will yield.

Stay safe and look forward to the light that is waiting at the end of the tunnel that is no doubt there waiting for us, even though we may not yet see it.
