Default Star Trails and GX

combining two passions. photography and car. while picking up the lady at the airport i decided to set up camp and shoot some star trails. i set up near Denver international airport in a random remote sub-station parking lot. 12mins in to the trails another car pulled up. i am pretty sure i scared them as much as they scared me but it still put an end to my trails.

Canon 5d Mark IV
Canon 16-35 f/2.8 lens shot at 16mm f/2.8
24 30" exposures stacked in photoshop using blend mode lighten
ISO 320

Fun! Nice job. LA doesn't have nice evening skies like that, have to get way out of town to see much.

I am fortunate to have views like this in my backyard and I am only 15 miles from downtown Denver. it wont last much longer though, too many people moving to my area adding light pollution.
