Title Star Trails Over the Salton Sea
Image Description The Salton Sea is one of the few places on the west coast you can shoot star trails with a sunrise over water. The Salton Sea is definitely a dirty, smelly place, but photography wise, it is great. In this shot, the light that appears to be rain is actually stars that expose themselves across the sensor as the earth rotates. This was about a five minute exposure. I couldn't go much longer on the exposure and not overexpose the light from the sunrise. This shot is one of my personal favorites.
