Friday image No.038

Bolivia at night. Olympus EM5, Samyang fisheye lens, f/3.5, ISO800, 73 second exposure.

This week’s image was just for a bit of fun and experimentation. Whilst I was in Bolivia I was camped half way up a volcano at around 4,300m. The sky was as clear as anything and the star show amazing. I decided to pop the camera on a tripod, whack on the old fisheye lens and see what I could capture. This is the result.

Sure the stars are moving and therefore a little blurred due to the long exposure. Despite this I am rather impressed by what the EM5 and a Samyang fisheye lens can actually achieve. I now wish I had locked open the shutter and captured some star trails. Mind you it was damned cold and I couldn’t wait to get under canvas.

Have a great weekend everyone.
