When Stars Wake

When Stars Wake

When Stars Wake, photo by Harold Davis.

As twilight fades to true night the stars wake. First, a few stars start to appear as pin pricks of light on a somewhat luminous background. As dark blue begins to fade to the black of night, a five minute exposure like this one will make the stars manifest themselves, trails and all.

[Nikon D300, 12-24mm zoom lens at 22mm (33mm in 35mm terms), 300 seconds at f/16 and ISO 100, tripod mounted.]
