The last light from the sunset together with the glow from the city lit up the landscape enough for a long exposure to see something but I had to compose, focus and execute the image in near darkness. Such fun!

5 min exposure, 5 min noise reduction, counting seconds, counting digits afterwards (make sure they’re still all there)…..
