Late Night Mist

Driving around the country lanes at 2300hrs on a Saturday night, I saw this river of silver mist, lapping around a large clump of trees, caught in the moonlight.

Had to stop.

Focussing required a fast prime, so I chose the Pentax 50mm. Three frames each of 8*8s so about 190s total exposure, all blended in Hugin, toned in darktable (using a fancy night-time effect), re-toned for black and white, then manipulated like nobody's in the Gimp to remove lots of distracting artefacts.
