Beam Me Up by CapturingTheNight Beam Me Up by CapturingTheNight

Dark skies + long exposure + head torch on a string = fun under the stars.

I found this rather unusual tree growing out of a crack in a boulder earlier on in the day and I wanted to capture it under the stars. I did a number of various compositions and lighting methods on it. As I was about to leave the area I decided to just let my hair down and go crazy with some light painting. This is my favorite shot from the night.

I love this! Was it a single exposure or multiple to get the end results? Thanks! :)

The light painting makes it appear as though you're being teleported away. I hope you remembered your towel! ;)

Awesome shot! Love your photos... what lens/setup do you use for these shots that you can get the sky in focus and in such detail?

Thank you very much :D I was actually standing in the one spot (as you can see by my legs) and twirling the torch around my head. Arm got tired after a while.
