    Great shots! I love the second one - what was the exposure time?

    +1? Those are such beautiful shots. I love the rocks in the first, especially the green of the moss. It's a great accent.

    For me the second one is OUTSTANDING! Well worth the patience in my opinion. I am curious what time it was? Beautiful sky, perfect fill. Love it!

    Thanks for the comment! Here's the EXIF for the second shot:

    Canon 5D Mark II & Canon 17-40L
    Focal length: 17mm
    Shutter: 20 seconds
    Aperture: f/4
    ISO 5000
    *Four exposures were stacked in post-processing to reduce noise.

    The exposure was 20 seconds long. At this focal length, you don't want to expose for much longer because you'll start to see star trails.

    Thank you! The second shot was taken at 2:40 AM. I would have taken it earlier but I was waiting for the Moon to set. Unfortunately I ended up pulling an all-nighter to get these three shots.

    Thanks for your comment! The lights on the mountain are actually headlamps from teams of mountain climbers trying to reach the summit. Here's a 100% crop to better show the mountain:

    Just saw the Rainer pic in the voting, how long of an exposure was that? Can I see your EXIF info? Very well done, I am envious of the fact that you got this shot and that you were there!
