McCarthys tower at Clonmacnoise provided the backdrop for this startrail. The orange glow on the horizon is light pollution from the town of Athlone.
Some more light painting in the foreground to brighten up the grass. Bring a friend to photograph monasteries at night. I brought my friend Niamh Keenan this particular night, thanks Niamh Not the best place to be on your own in the dark 😉
