Dance to the End of Time
Dance to the End of Time #2

Another one from the archives that I didn’t get around to posting.

I shot this 3 years ago in winter under a full moon at about midnight at Lake Eucumbene in the Snowy Mountains, Australia. This was my first shoot outside at night in winter. It was minus 5 degrees and when I got back home and my fingers started to thaw out I couldn’t believe the pain – Lesson 1 for winter night shots – wear mittens at the very least!
These trees were drowned along with a whole valley to create a man-made lake as part of a hydro scheme in the 1950s. They resurfaced as a result of a drought we’d been having for the last few years courtesy of global warming.

    Stunning!! A great capture and to have the Milky Way showing so well even with a Full moon. The moons illumination of the dead trees looks great against the stellar background. The 800iso has not impacted the image very much either. A great photo.

  • It was an incredible sky – never seen so many stars in a full-moon sky. Thanks for your lovely comment.
