"What The Eyes Do Not See, The D3S Never Misses"

I did the unthinkable and drove 350km's north of Perth, Western Australia, starting a 1am, to see if I could snap some of WA's renowned, new-season wildflowers. A few hours driving later, I parked on a thinly bitumenised road. The only light was from a squillion stars and a full-moon, which was the reason I did the trip, to put my D3S thru its paces, as the master of darkness. The picture you see was taken around 4.30am. It is not a classic image, because I still found it difficult under those extreme conditions to use the right focal points. (Hints?) The image was just 8 seconds at ISO 1600 and f/3.2. Incredible! The eyes do not see the greens at that time of the night, but the D3S simply changed an night image into day. The big downer for me was not finding these beds of wildflowers. Why? Because it was too damn dark!
