This is one of my favourite threads. Unfortunately my area is being hit by one of the biggest storms in a long while so it's doubtful I'll get a chance to shoot in the dark-week this month :(. I'm still holding thumbs that I might get one or two nights in the next few days. Otherwise I'll just have to wait a couple weeks again.

Thanks Click, I'm still experimenting with stitching and will probably have another run with this set of images to see if I can create another representation of this scene. I'm also looking into several innovative printing options.
