Star Trails over Turtle Lake

Last weekend we were invite to a friends cottage. Aside from enjoying the company of wonderful friends and relaxing in beautiful surroundings I was most excited to try my hand at shooting star trails and the Perseid Meteor Showers that occurred over the weekend.

Here’s one of first attempts at star trails. This was a 15 minute exposure.

  3. Congratulations on this wonderful picture. I like very much the composition, the dim light of the background adds to the image.
    I have tried to make this kind of picture  and I never managed to. 😦

    • Thank you so much Marcelo. This was not easy. I tried many different exposures and I feel I still need to practise more. This image was a 15 minute exposure at 2.8

      • Thanks you, Edith.
        I will keep on trying, but first I need to find a space far enough away from sources of light pollution to be able to capture the sparkling sky.

        • Yes that’s the challenge when you live in the city. I have the same problem.
