Hawai’i: Shooting Stars on The Big Island

December 1st, 2009

While in Kona, I took advantage of the total desolation of our remote location and played with some night photography techniques I learned in a class I’ve been taking this fall.
Tammi trudged out with me to the beach and assisted while I tried my hand at capturing star trails.
We sat out for an hour or so watching the stars and planets sink into the horizon. I had wanted to try to get the swirls around Polaris, like I’ve seen in many photos before, but accidentally discovering something cooler. We were far enough south that I got the edges of both the southern and northern swirls leaving this effect.
