I spent a hot summers night shooting down at Lake Clifton (About 100km South of Perth) and part of the Yalgorup National Park. There wasn’t any moon light on this visit, unlike My Last Visit to the lake, I had been planning on shooting some star trails, so the conditions turned out to be ideal to shoot star trails, unfortunately the tide was coming in, so the Thrombolites were submerged again on this visit.
I had to get wet for this shot as I couldn’t get the camera set up low enough to get close to the Thrombolites, and get enough sky in the frame, so had to set the tripod up in the water to get the composition I wanted. I left the camera to shoot while I went off to shoot with my 300D at Another position You can read about this shoot in My Blog
This was a 50 minute exposure shot with EOS 7D And 15-85 IS Lens. I used a spotlight to illuminate the foreground and to bring out the details of the Thrombolites.
