It was a very cold night. I was preparing the first brew before starting the actual photo shoot.

An interesting view to a very overshot location, welldone. Is that a comped in sky though?
Jon Griffith - 05/Jun/12Report
Nope! The sky is natural. I made damn sure it will be exposed properly. My head torch was overexposed and I spent some decent time trying to bring the highlights down!
Kamil Tamiola - 05/Jun/12Report

Jon Griffith calls this location "overshot", but personally I'd call it somewhere I want to go: what refuge is that to help me get an idea of where this is..?
subflux - 14/Jun/12Report
Dear subflux it is Refuge des Cosmiques. Please follow this link: http://www.refuges.info/point/342/refuge-garde/mont-blanc/refuge-des-cosmiques/

Dear ladies and gentleman! The photo has been officially featured by National Geographic and ... received 101 000 likes on Facebook within 22h completely crashing my Samsung mobile few times. Poor smartphone was unable to handle this data!
