Hot and cold in Chromaland

A single 4 minute RAW exposure shot with my spankin new Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8 fisheye lens on the D300. Twas love at first sight. Someone please help me pick it off the camera?


Location: Ersdalen, Hönö island, west coast of Sweden. Roughly one hour past sunset. Overlooking the archipelago and Gothenburg city in the distance. Vinga lighthouse making a nice flare on the horizon to the right. It was slightly overcast but one bright star made it through, signalling the morse code -.- "K" :)


I positioned the camera and fisheye on a tripod with boom, hanging out over the verge trying to capture the depth. It really was pitch dark so composition wasn't a breeze, had to take several long exposures and by trial and error move the ball head bit by bit.


I was on way home but was intrigued by the merge of cold and warm light on the horizon and thought the fisheye would bring them both in together, and it did.


Now let's view it Large On Black!
