Bridge to the stars

Bridge to the stars

African skies are awesome. It helps that this bridge in Kleinbrak River, South Africa, is  away from the major cities. I set up my camera on a brick wall under the bridge as it was the most stable thing around and I’d forgotten to bring my tripod along. It was a warm summer night which made the waiting for the timer and shutter very pleasant. I left the shutter open for 30secs, the aperture was f8, the ISO 200 and the Nikon ActiveD-Lighting was boosted to high. What I want to do next time is leave the shutter open for five minutes or so to capture the star movements. (Click on the picture for larger image)
