Having run out of battery power rather too often on long exposures, I got hold of a battery pack and bought a Pentax AC adaptor (although why Pentax charge £140 for this when they sell it in US for $100 makes me a bit niggled). My first attempt at dusk completely overexposed on a 35 minute exposure, and bulb work is often hit and miss which made me grateful for the battery pack! I messed up this shot by kicking the tripod in the last 10 minutes of a 45 minute exposure, but found it interesting how rather than being lit by the moon rising over Loughrigg fell, it could easily have been an afternoon shot:
Pentax 645D FA 33 - 55 at f/9.5 33mm and 45 minutes ISO 400
Along the valley there is a tree that always interests me. The tree is dead but has hatched another tree within its bark. I wanted to use 2 Pentax 540 flashes to isolate the tree but the area around it was completely waterlogged so I had to content myself with my fairly bright torch. This was my test shot, to check focus as it was pitch dark and AF wouldn't function.
