Orion climbing

Orion climbing
Went out at eleven o'clock last night and stayed out well into the night in the magical world of frost, snow, quiet, moonlight, starlight and good company! :o)

Stopped at this place to push a car that was stuck on the road and took the opportunity to capture Orion climbing the side of the mountain :o)

Yes, it was four minutes to midnight in total darkness on a mountain road... but the moonlight and the starlight was very bright! Thank you Angela :o)

Your homeland is a wonderful place... some day I will visit Island.
I love the stars, the wide angle, and like every time: contrast, sharpness and saturation ;-)

Takk takk Jóhannes, þetta er reyndar vélin sem ég var með - Canon 400D - en ég er sjálf alveg rosalega ánægð með það hvernig þessi mynd kom út! :o)

The Exif says Exposure was 0.3 secs, correct? Whatever it was, it's a stunning result!
