Stars Upon Dragonstone

Gosh, this is a tourist spot! Well known by location seekers, Fantasy enthusiasts and Game of Throne fans. It's Dragonstone!

And guess what: I don't have a clue about Game of Thrones. I never watched a minute. Although long, loooong ago I was a Fantasy fan reading Lord of the Rings, Shannara, Riftwar Saga etc.

Even without CGI this place looks so fantastic and out of this world that you *have* to take photos. If there weren't these crowds! So be patient and you will be rewarded.

I shot the sunset and waited for the stars to come out. Unfortunately the full moon rose and the night sky was flooded with bright light. No milky way, but star trails weren't that bad.

I was there last year. The steep path before reaching the coast was full of mud. Saw a lot of people sliding. But it was worth it. Lots of tourists indeed. Not in this shot however. Great capture!

Thank you very much. I didn't spot any mud. It was rather dry the time I went there. But the stairs to the beach were closed.
