  • Here I am looking up at the stars from my Bivy below Mt Blum. I started from the city in the morning and made it through the mountain side with a climber's path? I did not see a climber's path! Anyway, after making it to the summit I end up here with food, water and a few square feet of flat space until the morning. It was a nice day and also a pleasant night. The next day I am planning to climb Mt Hagan

Wowwww... Stellar capture, RandyL2C. 1stL? Good camera! Propped up, or do you always pack a tripod ? Looks like a shortage of campfire material ;) Granola bars for dinner?

Checking out Mt.Hagan.

Two considerations come to mind: Either my computer screen is extremely dusty or you were treated to a phenomenally starry night. Glad you enjoyed it LIKE

  • Thank you Stacy I used a micro tripod and it is in the alpince zone!
  • Joel, the stars were very nice that night. If you click into the photo you will see where I made my glissade marks after coming off that face of Mt Blum.

Yes I see them Randy, up on the lower set of tracks, down on the upper ones. Great job and a bivy well deserved. I guess, as they say, "the stars were shining on you that day"

Shaun Thomason,

Yes it was nearly a full moon. The view is approximately north, so for a 30 sec exposure there is almost no stellar motion.
