From the photographer: "In the foreground stands a fairly dilapidated (owing to vandalism and negligence) piece of history. It was once the home of Sir George Everest, a British surveyor and geographer who served as Surveyor General of India from 1830 to 1843. He is best known for having Mount Everest, the highest mountain on Earth, named in his honor. In the far, far distance one can see snow clan mountains that are a part of the Himalayan range. Above the house are star trail formations."
Technical details: Camera and lens: Nikon D610 with Nikkor 14-24mm f2.8 Shutter speed: 15 seconds, Aperture: f4, ISO: 1600, the image is composed of 303 total exposures that took a total of 99 minutes to take.
