Star Trails over Waterfalls

Not in Rochester, but a short trip away. Aunt Sarah's Falls. Watkins Glen, NY. Route 14. Near town of Montour Falls. Wonder how the falls got this name.


We were on our way back from Corning, NY and Jen decided to show me a couple of falls in the Watkins Glen area at midnight! And since I am a bit crazy, and I have a wife who supports my craziness. So here we were taking photos of falls, with exposures as long as 5-10 minutes.


Details: f/5.6 with 690sec exposure using Tamron 18-250mm @ 18mm.

To see how we shot this, check this photo out.


Wish I had turned on the Long Exposure Noise Reduction on the camera. Also, it was extremely hard to focus, even manually because there wasn't any light. I set the distance on the focus ring manually.


What I don't like is that the photo is too dark. When I add it to the groups, the thumbnail is boringly dark.
