10 second exposure @ f/5.6, ISO 100, 17mm

I mounted the camera on a tripod, set focus to manual, focused with live view. With camera on manual mode, experimented with ISO and aperture to get reasonable exposure using 10 second shutter, then locked-down the shutter so it would shoot unlimited 10-second exposures.  Out of 300 or so frames, this was the keeper!Lightning
