Against the backdrop of pounding surf and a light mist on the ocean, I photographed star trails behind Point Reyes Lighthouse in this portrait of the edge of night.

    Great photo and blog!
    You should try took foreground photo in the end. You avoid break in startrails. I think it’s also better to use iso 200. Iso 100 it’s not d300 native iso.
