Glencoe Lochan by Moonlight

This is a much-photographed view, looking down the length of the lochan from north-east corner to south-west, but I wanted to experiment with night-time photography for the reflections posisble. Definitely a "mixed lighting" photo. In addition to starlight (Sagitarius and Scutum near the Milky Way core, just left of centre), the distant mountain is illuminated by near-full moonlight with the moon rising out of the left side of the frame; I light-painted the trees along both shores of the loch by hand at the scene with a fairly powerful LED torch - rather amazed at the reach of the light.
