Last Man Standing (St Mary's 'Comet Like' Star Trails)

I went to St Mary's Lighthouse last night for a sunset shoot. When i arrived there was around a dozen photographers snapping away at the gorgeous sunset. After the sun had set all but myself and another photographer were left, a guy called Mark Coulthard. We got talking about star trails and after he left I thought id do one featuring the beloved St Mary's Lighthouse.
After I set up this shot and left my camera to do its thing I sat on the driest rock i could find and took in this gorgeous night time scene around me.

St Mary's Island, Whitley Bay, UK.
