Hi,

As something of a New Years Resolution I promised my self that I'd do more top side photography and push myself out of my underwater comfort zone.
This is one of my efforts from a weekend camping trip in the desert outside of Dubai.

EXIF Data
Canon 350D
10mm lens, Sigma
f9, to reduce the amount of light to allow long enough exposure to get long trails.
ISO 100
73 MINUTE exposure (and then another 73 min in camera processing), total just under two and half hours.

Hope you like it.

Cheers,
Richard B.
