Pacific Grove by Night
My stubbornness to miss a night's sleep really impedes my astro-photography aspirations. But thankfully, I have friends who insist that I push past my routine and capture a few long exposure night photography images in a gorgeous location. The coast of Pacific Grove near Monterey offers some pretty incredible rock formations. On a trip last spring, we set up our tripods in the parking lot and battled approaching traffic, the continuous cycle of the of the lighthouse and the biting cold. I decided this was as good a time as any to attempt to capture star trails. So, I set my long exposure trigger to 15 minutes and waited patiently for the end result. Patient really does pay in landscape photography.
