These are the world famous Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Drei Zinnen), Dolomites, as seen on October 4th 2012, at 11:20 p.m.
The lateral lighting is coming entirely from the Moon (73%), risen on the east at 9:05 p.m.
Night shot taken immediately before another shot already presented in my photo stream, bearing the same title.
My camera was obviously perfectly fixed on tripod, nevertheless that night was very windy, so I had to find a compromise between long exposures and camera stability. Trying also more shots, just to be sure of being able to take something home.
Clouds were moving pretty fast. In this shot the sky is temporarily more open, thus leaving more moonlight filter through the immense cloaks of fast-moving elements... also some more light pollution from Misurina is visible here.
Altair is shining in the sky, a bit trailing because the exposure definitely exceeded 30 seconds.
