Cape May Lighthouse 06/01/14

Posted: June 21, 2014 in Uncategorized

I had the star trail shot in mind for a long time. Finally, I got the chance to spend 90 minutes on the beach at Cape May. It’s tough to get a decent photo of the lighthouse at night because there are so many floodlights and tons of light pollution. After trying several angles, I found it best shooting from the beach. It was a beautiful calm night, except for the plane traffic. There was a plane in 200 of the 270 exposures. It’s a tedious process to remove them before processing the star trail. The center star is Polaris, the North Star. I was pretty excited that night as you can see in the middle photo.
