Low Light/Long Exposure Landscapes - NO artificial light

This challenge closed almost 7 years ago.

The Challenge

#Photo entered in the challenge must be submitted to the group!

Long exposures, please, but NOT of cities at night, just natural landscapes with no artificial light in sight, no flash either. Moonlight, starlight, auroras, comets, noctilucent clouds, the like. I will accept a city view that occupies A VERY small part of the picture (5% OR LESS), but only it if isn’t the focus of the picture (*i.e. it doesn’t detract from the natural beauty captured, no matter where on the grid it is placed).

See example (challenge avatar) for what should be entered in this challenge and group. and please NOTE: underexposure does not count as low light! So, NO shots taken in daylight – check the Description of the sample picture if in doubt
