A long exposure photo with light painting, showing the celestial movement of the heavens at the site where the TV show M*A*S*H was filmed.

Despite thermals and wool socks, I felt cold. Instead of laying on my back and looking at the stars or wandering around, I kept warm part of the time by running back and forth between the abandoned ambulances as the camera clicked away.
