I light painted the entire scene excluding the sky. During this 15min+ exposure, I had to climb down into crevasse and used my big flash to pop off about 40 flashes with an incandescent filter to add the gold color. Then climb back up in total darkness and paint the top of the rocky peak with another 15 pops using the fluorescent (lt green) filter to add contrasting color to the tops. Mother nature did the rest with the star trails and clouds!
