Mt Baker Star Trails (eastern slope)

This was taken at night during a full moon. The tip of Mount Baker as seen from Artist Point is brightened by moonlight as this is about 3 hours after sunset. I feel this view of Mt Baker is not very exciting but the star trails make it a bit more interesting. Canon 5D, f2.8L 24-70 @f4, ISO 100, and a tripod. Sixteen 30 sec exposures for a total of 8 minutes.
