Lone tree, stars

More like what i'd hoped to get last night but hadn't counted on the light polution behind the tree being as bad as it was. I couldn't keep the sky from blowing out and get the stars to show in the same frame.

 

I'd gone out with a light bag and didn't have any filters with me or I might have tried an upside down ND grad to hold the light polution back.

 

As it is recovered what detail i could in lightroom. Might go back next time it's clear with some grads.

 

Light in the foreground is from passing car headlights from the road about 15 meters behind camera.

 

45sec exposure
