About this image

First sighting of NLC in Birmingham for a couple of years, so just had to grab a photo.  Taking my life and iPhone in my hands, I ventured to the far side of the hill opposite my house and with my back to the street lamp took this snapshot.  That's my shadow in the foreground.  I made it back in one piece without being mugged or murdered.  Result!

Well done Gary

I bet you had a stiff drink when you got back after that ordeal
