A group camping under the stars on the Murray River near Berri, SA at Booky Cliffs campsite, Murray River National Park, Easter weekend, 2010. The near full moon illuminated the foreground for this exposure which was long enough to bring out the stars as well.

HONOURABLE MENTION IN “THE MOONLIT LANDSCAPE” CATEGORY AT THE 2010 DAVID MALIN AWARDS FOR ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY.
I was totally amazed to receive this HM! David was one of, if not, the best professional astrophotographer and worked at the Anglo-Australian Observatory for many years. He judged all the photographs in this national competition run by the Central West Astronomical Society in Parkes, NSW.
