Photographer's Note

Mt Miancimu rises to over 6000m on the border between Yunnan Province China and Tibet. Below, the Mekong River has carved a massive canyon.

I took this image on a one to one workshop I was leading, and I am almost ashamed to mention it, from the bedroom window of the hotel!

A fairly simple exposure 7 minutes at ISO 200 - lots of moonlight.

The star trails are long because of the focal length used, somewhere in the region of 240mm if memory serves me correct.

Stars can appear to move a long way in even a short time...
