Photo Of The Day – From The Field Bonus – Tangboche At Night


Title: Tangboche At Night

Location: Tangboche (alternatively; Thyangbiche, Tengboche), Solukhumbu, Nepal

Description: This night shot is not an HDR shot. I know it looked like it, but the monastery entrance is lit from some outdoor lights off to the right, giving it a brighter look with the white balance set to 4000K to keep the mountain colors correct. The distance range includes Mt. Everest peaking (har har har….I know it’s spelled peeking) out of the middle. The star trails are created by a long 332 second exposure at ISO 100 and f/8.
