Now that is a spectacular photo. Looks like you caught a meteor as well.

Indeed, on the 2nd exposure a really bright meteor burnt up. I've tried many times to catch a shooting star, this is my best yet.

Awesome. This one was also my favourite of the prints you had on display at Kendal Festival - great detail.

Thanks Dan, inevitably using a very high ISO has led to a less than totally sharp image but the overall effect is very pleasing. I wish I knew the solution; a lower ISO and longer shutter would lead to star trails but that may be a better compromise, I'll try that next time.

I saw this photo at Kendal Mountain Film Fest in print form.In my opinion should have been the photo of the fetival.The photo which won could have been taken in a studio.This was taken in the midst of the greatest mountain on the planet. It got to be one of the all time greatest mountain night photos.

yep, epic shot there. In terms of compromise, maybe splash out on an F1.0 :-)
