I ly av mørket
(under the cover of darkness)
Where: Sweden, Östergötland, Linköping. google maps
How and why: I headed out into a small woods at the edge of the city, deep snow but some tracks to follow, a flash light was really essential. I tried to catch some dark scenes, but found it difficult to control how dark or light they should be. This scene worked thanks to the open space and the strong shape of the tree at the edge of the wood, I thought. ISO 1600 was necessary to keep exposures short enough that the stars didn't make too distinguished trails.
