Went up to Kendal Castle at around half eleven last night, hunting noctilucent clouds. Did everything right, remembered the right tripod this time, camera battery was fully charged and memory card cleaned up, and with a lovely clear sky to the north in front of me, and the castle wonderfully free of the mass of drunk, drugged-up chavs which have been infesting it recently, so I was hopeful…
