Your night time photos are really great btw, something I have never got my head around is the time and effort required when I should be sleeping! This one I like over the others in that the headtorch beam is 'beamed', really well done.

As I said on FB think this is one of my favourite of your night shots. The leading line of the valley glacier makes it for me.

Really nice shot though I am wondering if it was two shots with one focused on the foreground or did the person with the headlight stand still for 25 - 30 seconds.

Thanks, the dude with headlamp is me.. i ran down the steep grassy bank in oversized crocs for each exposure.. 10 sec delay mode then 25 sec exposure!

That is an astounding photo and I loved your explanation of how you managed to get yourself and torchlight into the scene.
