One of my favorite locations to shoot, Spitzkoppe, Namibia.  This image was certainly one of the more interesting shoot experiences for me as I had to climb up the mountain and stay up until after midnight for the clouds to clear to get a nice clean star photo.  The real bummer was that once I had climbed up the mountain I hadn't considered that scrambling back down over boulders in the dark would not be the best idea. So, a quick trip up the mountain turned into an impromptu all nighter shooting start photos until dawn when I could safely descend.

I've probably spent over 10 nights shooting at Spitzkoppe and I still look forward to the next time I can get back.  The magic of Spitzkoppe is that you are truly isolated with just a small village (seen in distance of photo) to one side of the rock formations.  Also being hundreds of kilometers away from the nearest city and at over 1 mile elevation it is some of the best star gazing in the world.
