Star trails over the lake
Lens: DA21 Limited Camera: K20D Photo Location: Quebec city ISO: 100 Aperture: F4.5 
Posted By: bdery, 08-01-2011, 02:30 PM

Last weekend was almost the New Moon, so I took advantage of being at our cabin next to a lake to shoot a 14 minutes exposure of the lake and sky. There is still some light pollution from a city 50km away (lower right) but all in all I'm quite pleased with the result.

Enjoy!

Looks great Bdery,really like the 'watery' lights,trails above.
Have the Perseids meteor shower peaking on full moon this year (Aug 13)
Delta Aquarid's already coming off,still to peak though,both will converge.
Have to drive about 150 km,to get away from lights,think it will be worth it.

I have been playing with this also with interesting results. Nice job on your part.
Bill, wouldn't the full moon light interfere with the meteor shower? I am in the NV desert and would like to take a shot at it. Not sure which direction, but will google for more info. Thanks to both, Bob

Very nice, but it's making me dizzy. Shots that blur motion always do. I can only glance at things like this and enjoy them.

Sure will Bob,thats part of challenge.In our hemisphere if we center or offset a bit
from pole star (polaris), moon will be behind us.(close to zodiak).Wouldnt want to
use too wide of a lens,or have exceptionally long exposure.Never had the opp before
in this manner,will be a learning experience for sure.2 storms at once is very compelling,
Perseids being one of the 'biggies'.

Yeah, I like the combination of water and sky.

Not a great year, though on another pic from that night I got one meteor. It's already started

Maybe focus on the lake part?
