Image was taken in Richtersveld with Canon 5D mk 3 with 24 mm Samyang f1.4 lens.
Exposure on tripod: 20 sec.
Did side lighting with a small torch for 1-2 sec.
ISO 1200 left almost no grain.
Used "DSLR Controller" app on android tablet to zoom in and get focus. It gives complete control of the camera.
Did post processing in LR.
