I took this photo on my second night spent camping next to Balea Lake, after hitchhiking on the Transfagarasan Road, the most known high mountain road trip in Romania. It was taken shortly after sunset as you can see from the light at the horizon. The first stars appearing at the beginning of the night created star trails because of the long exposure.
It is actually the longest exposure I have ever taken as far as I can remember, 539.48 seconds (8 minutes 59 seconds), still exploring my possibilities with my new (but second hand) travel camera, a mirrorless Olympus Om-d E-m5 Mark II. So far super satisfied!
