Thank you for your vote, Yoshiyuki. Greetings from Canada.

I took this shot using a 300 mm lens and bulb settings on my dSRL Pentax (K10D)camera. I slowed down the shutter speed and increase the ISO speed to 400 to give me some additonal background light as it was a bit dark (24 hours of darkness)at this time of the year in Nunavut, Canada.

As I did not have my tripod with me, I made a snow hill and set the camera on it to stead the shot. I used my addition torque to keep the camera warm while I took the shot.
