The photo was taken in the Stubaital in Austria and shows the Stubai Glacier at night. It was taken with an analogue Mamiya M645. The exposure time was around 6 hours.

Patrick Betthaus ( née Opierzynski) was born in 1989 in Kamen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany and is a awarded black-and-white photographer. Already in his youth he photographed with a small digital camera and went in search of the most diverse motifs.

In the meantime, his photographic focus is on black-and-white photography. With it he tries to escape the fast pace of everyday life and to convey a feeling of calm, deceleration and balance to the viewer. While he initially photographed digitally, Patrick Betthaus now works exclusively with analog medium format equipment.
