The first I've seen this year. Beautiful calm night.

You can see the orange lights on the top of the three illuminated towers of the new Queensferry Crossing - sadly a major polluter of the night sky with powerful spotlights that go straight up and ruin darker skies than these. The red lights are on top of the two towers of the older Forth Road Bridge.

Autofocus wouldn't work on them so focus is not the best.
