I had a great little drive around town last night to test various urban/coastal areas light pollution levels. The photos I took were all for a photoessay about Byron Bay’s light pollution (or lack of) compared to other towns and you can read the whole article on Common Ground Byron Bay.

Pictured above, the view North-West from Belongil Beach. 30s / f2.8 / ISO 1600 / Nikon D5100 / Tokina 11-16mm

Taken from the same spot, you can see the white streetlight that detracts from some of the darkness.
