    I was going to say that person walks a perfect sine line but you beat me to it. Nice long exposure.

    Very cool shot, and a nice bit of luck that Mr. Headlamp happened along when he did.

    Ik vind het een leuk idee, maar ik denk dat het mooier is als je nog veel en veel langer belicht ( en op een filmpje..) zoals onze landgenoot doet (http://www.melvinredeker.nl/3melvinredekerphotography.html )

    Niet dat het mij ooit is gelukt ;-)

Starry night at Confluencia camp on Aconcagua, Argentina

The story behind "Starry night at Confluencia camp on Aconcagua, Argentina"

A few weeks ago I joined one of the Aconcagua expeditions for a few days. Strangely enough we had a big snowblizzard already in first camp, Confluencia (3300m/11,000ft). But in the evening it cleared wonderfully to show the Milky Way, something I can never see from y home city due to the light pollution.

This was taken with a long exposure, the tent was actually not lit, nor from the inside or from the outside, just by the stars and some light from the kitchen tents. But halfway during the exposure, somebody walked behind the tent, into and out of the frame, wearing a headlight. You can see his cadence in the long light sinusoid line :)
