This way up

This was such an incredible sight in the faint moonlight. These were just a few of the hundreds of people silently trudging up to the viewing areas for the Swiss air force's annual air display and live firing at their shooting range in the Alps. You had to get up there early before they closed off the access for the morning training session.

 

Forgive the grain but this was taken at ISO 2000 - and it still needed a 1/3s exposure. It was 7am and still dark. Only the moonlight and the first hint of the dawn were lighting up the sky.
