January, 2015 Winner: Alone With the Universe
Contest Number: 101 Contest Theme: Best of 2014 Lens: Pentax DA 10-17mm Fisheye Camera: Pentax K-30 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F3.5 

Me and a friend went looking for a hut somewhere in the Pemberton area of BC, Canada. We could not find it, and we ended up having to camp outside. My friend decided to make camp within the trees, but I opted to camp out on a frozen lake. A middle-of-the-night bathroom break got me out of the tent, and before I got back in I realized the phenomenal sight I was witnessing. I sat for a while, just staring, when I decided I would try and capture the scene as best I could. My hope is that, with this photo, I am able to convey what I was feeling that night.

Awe insp

I LOVE this photograph. Aesthetically very appealing to me. Great mood. Serenity and spookiness at the same time. Awe. Lots of deep questions. The timeless present.

I would also have loved to be there, actually. ☺

Kudos, to my taste it's the best of 2014's best.

This nomination is an Input Overload!
I choose this pic because it combines "Heimat"-feelings with outer space in a beautiful way.
