North Carolina Stars

A few star shots I got from my recent Thanksgiving trip to NC. It is amazing how many stars the camera can pick up. It's also amazing all the different sounds you hear in the middle of the woods in the middle of the night.

To pick up all the light you need at least 20 sec. exposure with the lens wide open, ISO cranked. The most interesting star photos are those with some sort of landscape, which I really didn't have. So I tried to use the trees. If you leave your shutter open for a few hours you can trace the star trails perfectly across the sky. It was way too cold for all that.
