Finally got a photo of the milky way with a visible galactic core! (The orangey bit near the horizon) I went down to Durdle Door in west Lulworth with @the_photography_chap as we thought it would make a nice foreground, it's a fairly sheltered cove with little light pollution.
The conditions were perfect - which is extremely rare! At this time of year the galactic core is above the horizon, the moon had set and there was not a cloud in the sky, I've never seen the night sky like this it was stunning!
We decided to stay the night and get a few sunrise shots as well, Craig brought the tent, I brought the stove and some coffee and my lovely wife @unafoster packed us some chocolate treats! We set up camp on the beach near some rocks, Craig heard and noise and said "Glenn, what was that" I knew what it was straight away, the hairs stood up on the back of my neck - it was the unmistakable war cry of a rock mouse! The rock mice could smell the chocolate, it was like a mini stampede there were hundreds of them! They came right for us! Baring their fangs! Ok ok there was just one and he was tiny and I didn't even see it, Craig did, but it still freaked me out enough to be on 'mouse watch' for half the night 😂
Just for the record I don't know if there is any such thing as rock mice, I haven't googled it... In fact f**k it. It's a mouse who lives in a rock - they definitely exist... Fact.
