It was the first clear night we have had in a while so I went out at 2am, small hike up to the Penrith Beacon.


Penrith Beacon, Star gazing by TomScottPhoto, on Flickr

Penrith Beacon is a monument built in 1719, on a spot where beacons have been lit in times of war and emergency since the time of Henry VIII. Traditionally, the Beacon was used to warn of approaching danger from Scotland.

I didn't really plan on going, more of a last minute decision. But this subject seemed the natural choice being up the road from me, although its high and about a mile from Penrith, there was still light leak from the town which has produced this etherial purple and orange  colour cast. Although not technically correct I feel it has enhanced the image.

The image was made possible with the 5DMKIII, it was pitch black and it was shot on a 24-105mm F4 lens. With the incredible ISO capability this was shot at F4 at 16,000ISO!!! with an exposure of 4 seconds so as not to get star trails. Then some light was filled by painting with a small torch.

Really pleased with the quality the noise for that sensitivity and duration is really impressive.

Many thanks Click and Krob78.

That lighting lasted all of five minutes. We had been shooting at Sedbergh School the day before, and stayed at an old coaching house in a small village called Barbon. We left early in the morning just before sunrise to head to the Lake
District national park and just after sunrise we were caught in an amazing light. The whole scene looked like something from a fairy tale. We stopped the car and literally ran into the dell and just got the shot in time !

The ice cliff Glacier on Mt Stuart (Washington) yesterday at about 4am.  Shots like these are why I'd love to have a 50mm f/1.4 IS!  This was 50mm, 1/10s (yeah, I have no idea how it isn't a blurred mess either...got lucky), ISO 6400, f/1.4

Wow, you've really caught the atmosphere in that shot, and let us share a little of the experience. Well done !

These 2 pictures were taken 3 1/2 hours apart - I didn't deliberately frame them the same, as I wasn't intending to do a comparison shot, but in retrospect I was struck how much difference the changing lighting made...
