Wimmera Trails

A recent trip up to Dimboola allowed me some access to some pollution free sky and an opportunity to try out some Star Trail photography.

I tried on two nights.  I learned a lot the first night – there is a lot of work in post processing these images.

Taken on a 5D Mark III with the 16-35 f/2.8  L II USM lens, I had  around 30 x 4 minute exposures at ISO 800 with some nice silhouetted trees in the foreground.  A single car over the ~ 3 hours came up and back the road I was next to, illuminating the tank and trees just nicely.

I took the Star Trails themselves using a TriggerTrap connector and my iPhone.  I still need to play more with this.

In any case – enjoy the Wimmera Trails.
