Starry Night

After trying to photograph starry nights for some time I finally had success with this one at Lagoon Saddle Shelter in Craigieburn Forest Park. The foreground was lit with one small candle to stop it from going completely black and it took an eight minute exposure to light the hut. It was a rewarding shot to get as I had battled through deep snow to reach the shelter.
