So, I went today to the Uetliberg to take some night shots of Zurich, this time from high altitude and far away.

Uetliberg is a small mountain in the southwest of Zurich. About 900m, high, it has a cellular tower that one can climb and has an impressive 360 degree view. Weather was clear so it was a great opportunity to take some low-light pictures.

Of about 30 exposures, this is the only exposure that survived, hehehe. Conditions were kind of tricky because up in the cellular tower, there was a lot of wind. Now, I have a good Manfrotto tripod, but it is not one of those USD 800 tripods. When it gets windy, it kind of vibrates. Plus, I have the impression that the tower also moves slightly with wind gusts, and that can be a problem with a 30-second exposure, as this one.

Comments and feedback are very welcome.
