Alone with a view by Alex37 Alone with a view by Alex37
I broke my PB for getting up early this morning. 3.30am. I also absolutely destroyed my record for least sleep. I got to sleep just after 1.

Shooting in these conditions just makes me so happy, there's not a sound to be heard, no wind, just myself and a fantastic view.

This one is from before the sun rose, although the ambient light is largely coming from the sky in this shot, as well as the moon full moon (which is what dragged me out of bed so early!).

The hawthorn tree in the foreground is a particular favourite of mine, and lies on the western face of Cox Tor.

Isn't it wonderful to get up early. The stars are so bright. And the calmness, you are right, it's great.

This is great too.
30 seconds at ISO800....so this would be a 2 minute exposure on my D3 (base ISO is 200) and a 4 minute exposure at ISO100. It must have been pretty dark out there

Alex37 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
yes very dark, to give you idea, I had to manually focus on the tree because the AF couldnt find sufficient contrast half the light is provided by the moon still. Thanks Andy
