summit lake trails
This is the first of several star trails I took while camped in Lassen Volcanic National Park. Unfortunately work has been getting in the way of my processing/flickring time and posting images has been slow going this week! The Lake (more like a pond) is North summit Lake and was directly behind my campsite.
The foreground was taken right around sunset and I began shooting the exposures for the trails shortly thereafter. This image proved to be a fair degree more difficult to assemble then my other startrails as it required substantial judicious use of masking in photoshop.
35 exposures at 3 minutes each for the trails. ISO 500
