A shot at night in Africa

Long time-lapse photography is something I had not done since I had film in my cameras as digital cameras are more prone to noise once exposures go up ……

but in South Africa this easter I was staying at a farmhouse with no electricity in an area where i could see the sky and the stars clearly. Took a pic of the farmhouse 45seconds – and only the candles inside gave any light so I used a torch to paint the building with light over the 45 second shutter opening ……  Love the Southern Cross (constellation) behind the house.
