Shot at Bandipur National Park at around 1 in the morning.
It was so dark and quiet that every small noise made me jump. All kinds of animals (Snakes, elephants, leopards, tigers etc.) inhabit this place. Towards the end of the shot (around 2 in the morning), I almost fainted when I heard cats/wild cats crying. It was the spookiest experience I have ever had.
The flare seen on the left bottom of the frame is visible because the surface temperature of my lens dropped below the dew point and was totally wet!
Shot with the 18-200mm @ 18.
Total exposure = 1.5 hours (18 shots, 5 mins each, stacked together to reduce digital noise).

Very nice effort dude, what did you use to stack em?
@tdmphotography : There is this small software called star trails.. Just google stacking star trails and you will find it. You could do the same in photoshop too.
