“I was holidaying in Kelling and had the very good luck of seeing Noctilucent Clouds on the last night I was there. 

Below are some images I managed to snap. I must admit that the clouds were so extensive that I didn’t think they were NLC’s! I was not prepared either, the only lens I had on me was a 70 – 300 lens which didn’t do the scale of the clouds justice. “
