A night under the stars

Whilst camping in the Snowy Mountains last September with some friends we witnessed an amazing sunset.

As the sun disappeared at this altitude the clouds stayed low in the sky taking on the reds of the sunset whilst up above the deep blue tones of the night sky became visible.

At this point there was something that I really wanted to try, so leaving my tripod setup and being careful not to walk through my composition I walked back to camp for dinner. Lucky the sky stayed clear for what I had in mind and a few hours later I set off to get an image when the stars were out above my chosen rock formation.

I hope you like the results.
