Stars above the Norfolk sea

Taken from Blakeney, a beautiful village in Norfolk, UK. A very windy night (Storm Ciara). I was really excited to get out that night and set up the tracker near to the sea to capture the beautiful night sky. Wind was really strong and the Moon was just a few minutes away, so I had to be really quick.
