Cold Calm

A chilly but peaceful February sunrise combined with star trails at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse in Bristol, Maine. This image is a composite of the foreground shot and 88 frames of the sky to make star trails. Processed through Lightroom 5 & Photoshop CS5.

Can you see this with the naked eye? No. Can you see this in your mind's eye? Probably. Can you create images like this if you're interested? Yes!

Pemaquid Point is an exceptional spot for capturing the features of the night sky while including some great foreground elements. I am hosting a small group night photography workshop here in April and there are still a few spots left: http://www.biturls.com/PuX8q
