I had just purchased a shutter remote for my camera with an interval timer and thought I’d try some star trailing shoots. This is my second attempt at this using a compilation of just 62 images at 30 second exposure in 1 minute intervals (30sec capture 30 seconds processing time) and 400iso.
A tranquil stream located in the ravines of Vasquez Rock California. Water continues to trickle down into it from the high ground but the stream itself appears motionless as a bed of leaves nearly covers its entirety. I had nearly jumped into while exploring through here believing that it was only leaves upon dry earth until examining it a little closer and hearing the dripping of water between the darkened crevice.
One of the few meteor streaks I was able to capture on camera during Saturday’s Geminid meteor shower. With the dozens that I was able to see with my own eyes, I found out how NOT so easy it was to actually capture one on camera! With 3 hours of continually shooting at 20-30 seconds exposures, I think I was able to actually get only 4 to 5 of these streaks through the camera eye, and never more than a single one each time, even though there were several moments where I saw 2 or more passing just seconds apart!
