Submitted: Monday, 1st August, 2011 01:56 (GMT)
Taken: Tuesday, 28th June, 2011
Focal length: 170 mm
Shutter speed: 1/15 sec
Aperture: F5
ISO: 100
Notes: I accidentally left the ISO fixed at 100, despite the long focal length. Somehow I held it rock-steady for 1/15 of a second. I retook it at ISO 3200, just in case, but it wasn't any better.
