Looks like you got the perfect sky time for this. I love it
Wow, I’m out of words to describe how cool these are! FANTASTIC work!
I didn’t notice the snow on the mountains until I read the tags on the post! Sweet “fire & ice” pics 🙂
Can I ask what kind of tripod you use for these long exposures? Do you find it’s critical to use a really beefy set of legs and head, or do you get by fine with something more lightweight and portable?
Chris, you definitely want something sturdy for longer exposures like this, but that doesn’t mean it has to be heavy. For years I lugged around a heavy Manfrotto aluminum tripod and eventually went carbon fiber to address the weight. I didn’t lose any stability and I’m much happier on longer treks with my pod. Thanks for the comment.
