    Well, landscapes are not my forte, and a nightscape with no tripod (used a fence pole) is not the easiest thing to do. But at least I think this photo shows the scale and beauty of these mountains. The light is from the moon and the slightly coloured artificial light is from the cabana behind me!

    Wonderful atmosphere. Sooo many stars. And the fence pole did well. I guess you did the "timer-trick" as not to move the camera as of the moment the shutter releases?

    Fantastic shot! I'm not seeing much motion. Can we get the EXIF data on this puppy? Really nice exposure.

    Camera Nikon D700
    Exposure 30 seconds
    Aperture f/3.5
    Focal Length 20 mm
    ISO Speed 1600

    The reason the aperture is so wide and the iso so high is that since i could not use a cable release, i couldn't use the Bulb mode. Other wise the aperture and iso would have been far nicer for this sort of shot :D
