Assynt by Alex37 Assynt by Alex37
I went to bed at around 10.30 got up at 1am to shoot the stars and didnt get back to sleep again until gone 2.30. Then it was time for my 4am alarm and the final ascent of Stac Pollaidh.

One thing I can do is motivate myself to get up when I know there is a good photo up for grabs and this may well be the most spectacular scene I have ever seen. Although I am very confident with my technique I checked my settings more than twice to make sure everything was perfect. The final image is 34mp composed of 4 horizontal frames with massive overlaps (to protect against sun flare issues) In all it took me about 2hrs30 minutes to stitch the images (I had to set up the points myself) and remove all the flares) and a further 30 minutes to correct the image. As such this is my most time consuming process ever but the reults stand up to scrutiny hopefully!

looks like your hard work paid off big time - both in getting the shot and stitching/processing it!
