Stars & Clouds Over the Marginal Way

After being disappointed with an accidental tripod shift the other night, I wanted to get back out and shoot this scene again. Because of the rising tide, I couldn't stay in the same location I was in last time.


There was light - medium cloud cover that cleared as the night went on. I began shooting around 11pm and went until 1am. I was hoping for a complete composite with all of the star trails over the two hour span but because of the clouds, the tone of the sky was too inconsistent and the trails were too hidden earlier and clear later.


Additional lighting was used and included:


2x Mini-Maglites

2x LED flashlights

1x Maglite 3 D-cell torch


Total exposure count


5 @ 10min

1 @ 12 min

1 @ 3 min


All exposures are f/4 @ 100 ISO
