    star trails!!!

    i haven't had a chance to shoot star trails in over a year.


    if you can believe it, i almost didn't bother taking this last night because i looked out the window and saw some clouds on the horizon.


    how sad would that have been, i think the clouds actually add a really cool dimension to the photo.


    unfortunately, i hurt my ankle on friday and wasn't actually able to venture down and take the shot from the beach, maybe next time!

    my one sadness is that i didn't shift the camera a little over to the right so the north star wasn't so close to the side of the image.


    d700
    16-35mm
    30 minute exposure

    c&c always welcome. if there are any other star trail shooters out there i'd love any tips and ticks you've picked up as this is still a relatively challenge thing for me to shoot.
