13-minute exposure of Mount Hood from Trillium Lake, taken at around 3am. Originally, the exposure was meant to be much longer, but a huge bank of fog rolled in from the left and completely obscured the view.

What I find most interesting is the number of lights on the mountain itself. The huge cluster of bright lights at the treeline are Timberline Lodge, and it looks like the headlights of a snowcat just above that, descending down from the upper ski area. However, the rest of the little white light trails can only be riders coming down (at three in the morning!), or climbers heading up to the summit to be there for sunrise.
