The lights of night. by Iamidaho The lights of night. by Iamidaho
The stars of night twist around the immovable Tetons mountains as the last remnants of light on the horizon fade into darkness.

Its amazing how many diffrent colors and lights show up when you do a long exposure, hints of subtle colors invisible to our eyes suddenly become visible.

2005 second exposure (33 minutes) ISO 200 at F4 on a 16-35 2.8 L lens. The freezing temperature help the sensor capture the scene with much less image noise than normally expected. none the less this is still a concept in progress and im excited for future generations of cameras that will capture this scene with less and less image noise.

The hardest part about photographing a scene like this on a moonless night is your blind, you have to level the camera by your bubble level and make a guess as to the field of view the lens is bringing in and your composition. Infinite focus is determined hours earlier while there is still enough light to use live view. Zooming the lens runs the risk of out of focus shots because zoom lens are not parfocal and change there infinite focus point throughout there zoom range.

I think you deserve all of these 'favorites,' this is a beautiful image. I'm trying to do exactly the same...i'm just learning at the moment, nowhere near as good as this. I can never get the focus right...'auto focus' endlessly tries to focus on something but I can never find anything to focus on. Your description is enlightening...you learn something everyday Hehe. Thankyou.
