To mark the end of British Summer Time, long exposure photographer Andrew Whyte captured some incredible star photography in some of the places where the sky is darkest in the UK. This includes shots of the Milky Way above Elf Kirk viewpoint in Northumberland National Park and the Pontsticill Reservoir in Brecon Beacons.

The images were shot using a Sony α7S camera, which is portable, professional and with an ISO range of 50-409600, it's specifically sought-after for low light photography. Whyte himself notes: "As a long-exposure photographer, I’m always searching for equipment which renders great detail while allowing me the largest range of creative potential. I’ve been truly blown away by the image quality I can capture in low light using the Sony α7S."
