Stars over Les Drus – Weymuller Photography

OK, it is 4:30 AM here….but I just finished the process of capturing and editing this image, and I couldn’t wait until morning (or more accurately; daylight) to share it. Amazing night sky with no moon here in Chamonix, France. Once I get up to Spitsbergen there won’t be anything remotely close to this for 9 days.

1 hour exposure
f 2.8
ISO 100
28mm

It took my camera (Nikon D300s) almost an hour to process the data into a single file. Even with an external battery pack (that holds 8 AA rechargeable batteries) I nearly ran out of juice while it crunched the image.
