After spending a good couple of hours in this lake floor with not a single soul around, I decided to try a selfie. If you have done this before, you know holding still for longer than 2 minutes, let alone 30 seconds, isn’t an easy thing to do, especially when it is quite cold. Once I framed the shot with myself clear of the Grandstand and the Milky Way over my head, I stepped onto my mark and pressed the remote shutter. It was one of the longest 146 seconds I could remember.
