Desert at night

I love shooting long exposure landscapes at night. It is very interesting experience and also very challenging. Not only focusing becomes a problem but also composing an image becomes difficult (a torch is a must!). Often it is also cold at night what is another difficulty. Also noise is inevitable in such a case due to very long exposure and/or high ISO settings.

But the results are often surreal, extraordinary, beautiful. In this post I upload several long exposure photos I took during my recent stay in Dahab, Egypt. All of them were taken in one place using Canon 50D and Canon 10-22 lens. During the shoot I used exposures between 45s and 60s and ISO between 800 and 1600. Of course I used a tripod and remote shutter release.
