Because of Shillingstone's rural situation there is no light pollution. Shots like this are relatively easy to take, although on this occasion there was a fare amount of fast moving cloud. This weekend Jan 29-31- 2010 the Full Moon conjoins with Mars which is now at its closest approach to the Earth. Mars can be seen in the distance on the left of this image. One of a group of winter images of the Stour Valley, Shillingstone.More pictures of Shillingstone by Graham Rains...
