McWay Falls, Big Sur, California

While waiting for the Milky Way to rise a couple weeks ago I decided to play with some star trails–not usually my cup of tea but thought it was the perfect opportunity to let the D800E I was borrowing do its thing while I was sprawled out on the ground, listening to the crashing waves and watching for shooting stars.

Every now and then I like these shorter star trails, and once the Milky Way rose the 45 minutes dedicated to this shot was enough. I feel night photography is often even more open-ended than general landscape work, and sometimes I embrace the hell out of light pollution. A large boat was making its way north and added the warm glow, the Milky Way rose in the middle of the trails on the left and because of personal taste I use really cold white balances when shooting the night sky–it just happens to fit into my work flow. And I think it added to this wanna-be-Alex-Grey-esque psychedelic scene.
