Best of my shots from the lake last night/this morning.
Lens: Samyang 10mm f/2.8 Camera: Pentax K-3II Photo Location: Prince Gallitzin State Park, Fallentimber, PA 16639 ISO: 640 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F3.5

It was new tripod day yesterday. I got a koolehaoda with a ball head, which makes using portrait orientation easier than the old tripod (old tripod does have wider leg spacing though for better stability). Got this one as my last shot of the night. As always there's tons of light pollution because small towns in PA don't believe in changing over to LED street lamps, plus there are some clouds. I finally figured out my new electronic shutter remote as well, so this is a 150 second astrotracer shot of the milky way in portrait orientation, using the samyang 10mm f/2.8.

Geez - shows you I'm an old geezer with my head stuck where the sun don't shine!

I was thinking of AussieTrev.

Still, the message is the same: I like the photo a lot.
