moon light -14mm F2.8 @ F4 ISO 1250 WB normal day setting rather than 4000K.

Giesla thank you my hope is you feel you are there but missing the cold and the wind. its just persistence that gets the results its still to me the very same felling when i get to see the whole sky like you see her as well. Steve

The curve of the jetty complements the milky way bow well! The moon looks like an UFO:-)

I did my best to make sure the moon was a part of the shot so you got the feel for the landscape . this was early well before any sunlight in the atmosphere. i will end up back at 20 sec to get the perfect shot. star wise. another for my screen saver.

most would be asleep but 3 am start made the result so worth while and getting out of bed . Man it was cold but like you think who needs a bed when you can get this just down the road. enjoyed breakfast and coffee i can tell you. this was all Pieter i was just working not even looking but tired helps to trust some one else of like mind. the end result just blew me away a place i have always wanted to shoot............... best of my best shot. steve
