Trial Bay, Tasmania. AUS

My one and only nightsky scape from my recent trip to Tasmania and about the only time I saw the stars. It was either raining or just cloudy for most of the time. About half an hour after I did this shoot the clouds rolled back in. The faint bands and patches in the sky are from thin cloud so even for this shot I didn't have completely clear skies. Crescent moon just off to the top right of frame is lighting up the landscape.
I had a star trail shoot in progress before I did this but after only 15 minutes or so a couple of guys came down the road to launch their boat and seeing as I was setup in the water at the end of the boat ramp I had to move.
