not an earthly view (explored)

One 30 sec exposure f2.8 iso 3200 nikon d700 14-24 at 14mm.led lightpainting.


This was the second time I spent the whole night out on these rocks without sleep shooting the stars in the cold pitch black darkness.Very uncomfortable and dangerous.I fell off one rock at least a metre and a half into the unseen darkness onto more rocks while shooting but luckily wasn't hurt.It also got scary at about 4.30 am as massive waves rolled in on the high tide around me and my tripod.Still the long night is never long enough to try and capture all the images you can visualise before the sun comes up and turns it back into the familiar world.
