1 minute exposure with 14mm lens and f2.8 at ISO 2000. I illuminated the inside of the tent with a head torch.

Amazing gallery, are you a professional photographer and mountaineer ?

I much prefer this one to the other MW shot, thanks to the nice foreground. (How often are 6000m high mountains mere foreground?)

Stunning. Bet it was cold :-)

Thanks Paul, not too cold at all; it went below freezing on most nights that we were camped on the Baltoro Galcier and we had -15 deg C on the Gondogoro La (5600m) at 5 in the morning. Lower down it was scorchio, mid to high 30's.
