Making home beautiful

Having lived in Hertfordshire all my life, I have slowly become bored of my home town of Hoddesdon as the town has little to offer. Recently I have been driving around and noticing some beautiful sights of the local area. Last weekend I headed to a secret viewpoint that overlooks Hoddesdon, Nazeing, Dobbs Weir and Broxbourne. Combining my love of astrophotography I trialled different exposures, ISO's and aperture settings in an aim to make my town look beautiful. This is something I am slowly going to attempt over the year.
