Description

I drove my family including a two year old 50 miles to a remote hilltop - and we were all rewarded by the stunning site of not only Neowise, but a backdrop of the most amazing noctilucent clouds. As good as it gets. I had all manner of lenses and telescopes but the best for this vista was a 14mm I brought for a Milky Way shot. Of course I got the close up but, the wide shot featuring the clouds is hands down the winner for me.
