Star Trails Over Lake Clifton Thrombolites  by EOS20

Star Trails Over Lake Clifton Thrombolites by 

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.

    Beautiful, did you use the bulb setting? What fstop did you use? and was your iso 100? I am planning on a night trip tonight, and I am amazed at it being only a 50 minute exposure, I am using a 10-22mm canon wide angle lens and a canon 50d tonight. I could sure use some advice.
