Carew Castle

Situated overlooking a tidal mill pond in Pembrokeshire, it's hard to imagine a more scenic setting for this grand stricture. This was the first image of an ongoing project to capture Britain's more remote castles with the night sky. On the evening this was taken, a huge electrical storm was raging over Cornwall, illuminating the band of cloud along the horizon. Before long, the clouds rolled closer, putting an end to this brief but spectacular glimpse of the Milky Way behind the castle.
