I’ve made no secret of how much I love the @huaweimobileuk Mate 20 Pro. It’s fantastic to have a cameraphone to hand which isn’t restricted to 10 second exposures in “pro” mode (yes, I’m looking at you @samsungmobile Galaxy S9+!!). I’m truly stunned by how well it performs in low light. My DSLR is quaking just thinking about what the phones will be like in a few more years! This was taken at on my favourite spots in Snowdonia, Llyn y Dywarchen, near Rhyd Ddu on a beautifully clear night during the Leonid meteor shower (more of a trickle as it happens :p), you can even see one creeping into shot on the left. Yes, it’s not perfect, but this is a phone taking this shot! #cymru #wales #snowdonia #leonids #snowdon #lake #huaweimate20pro #mobile #phone #darkness #night #lowlight #longexposure #still #stars #moonlight
