Tree Arch near Eagle Falls, Lake Tahoe

After driving for over an hour and staying out until SUPER-LATE-THIRTY, I failed to get a decent star-trails photo of Eagle Falls at Lake Tahoe. I had this arch in mind as a backup shot and I think it came out pretty decent.

 

Specs:

Nikon D3, Nikon 17-55mm. The overall exposure is 91 minutes and is built from 13 images at 7 minutes each. I used such long stacking frames to achieve a deep depth of field (F/10). The ISO was 800

 

Foreground was painted using a tungsten torch.
