Some late night malarkey at Portland Bill, hunkered down by some old huts to shelter from the biting cold wind, waiting for it to get dark enough for the beams to show up against the night sky....no fun!

This is a two shot blend, captured from almost total darkness, one fast frame to 'freeze' the 4 beams and one slow frame to expose the land and buildings. As it was pitch dark I had to ratchet the ISO to 16000 (gulp) at f/4.0 to get 0.3 sec for the 'fast' frame!

Hope you like it Wink

I am not too far away from Portland, so I can appreciate how cold it was.

Great shot, good composition and good control over the technical aspects of the shot.
