Nice. How long was the exposure on this? I'm surprised the stars didn't move more.

20 something exposures, 30 second each with a separate exposure for the rock and for the sky all balanced in photoshop. Fully inspired by your head torch shot at Stanage actually!

Great photo. Hat's off to the climbers and photographer as this photo clearly took a bit of committment. Double Diamond has made it into the forthcoming new edition of Hard Rock to be published next month, deservedly so.

Cheers Simon. Was about 5 hours Barn to Barn, set off at 1am and Guy just topped out as the moon rose over the top of the arch which would have ruined the last few exposures, you can see the effect of the moon light on the land through the arch.
