    Just a piece of wood that you fasten the wire wool to. I can drop it off before I go back to Norway.

    Went out tonight...

    Four police cars later and at home, managed to get a few shots. The joys of living in rural england!

    Police were friendly enough despite me looking a bit like a poacher.

    Just up the end of my street into the fields and there is an old coal yard. obviously a member of the public thought I was on the rob. Being by the railway, someone flashing torches rather oddly might raise a bit of suspicion.

    So had four police cars come racing up, torches in the eyes. Friendly enough once I explained and helps as the old man is a bobby so they all know him. One is even quite a keen photographer themselves and we had a quick chat about the joys of night photography!

    Its typical for around here. People ring up for anything. I hope they were watching as I gave a friendly wave as they drove away. :lol:

    Was out with the missis so it's either they thought we were robbing or dogging!

    Two images I managed to get. Not perfect but it's literally a case of my just playing around to see what works best. Just using a head torch and then a smaller maglite which seems to work pretty well

    Looks canny, now all you need is some coloured acetate / gels. :cool:

    the cheapy xmas lights are ok and they will work, but if you want brighter and more variation, like maybe 2 or 3 colours in one orb then you need to buy singles or like packs of 20 or something and solder a bunch together then wire them to a battery pack with on/off switch, if you know about electrics am sure you can figure out what i mean.

    something like these will do
