On this cold winters evening I packed my camera bags knowing I was in for a long night under the crisp cold sky.
After the three hour drive to the location that would be my home for the evening I got out of my vehicle and walked to the lake edge to look into the dark waters- they were fairly smooth and calm.
I then went back to my vehicle that dew was already settling on and started setting up my photography kit, with a lens warmer to stop this moisture from building up on the front element of my lens!
The next task was wriggling into my waders that would keep the cold water at bay.
I carefully carried my tripod with the robotic panorama head and camera system attached into the dark waters and then I began imaging the scene before me, which I later titled "Spaceman"
This is shot looking back to the shoreline I had walked out from.
The airglow on the horizon really defines the mountains.
The Milky Way grandly rises into the night to the East.

Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
