Before we left for Florida in May, we went on a camping trip to Joshua Tree. It's been a long time since I took some star trails photos so I decided to do some then. Unfortunately our campsite location was crappy (we were mostly surrounded by rocks and we were near the camp entrance - it was all we could find, most of the campgrounds were full) so I had rocks for foregrounds and I couldn't do longer exposures because cars kept passing us, overexposing my shots. I am lucky to have gotten 4 ok shots. //~~~// At least Joshua Tree is only a drive away. I can always come back and do it better next time.

    @kibs @mafiosa @clownshoes @alburnkat @chourique @sobetion haha thanks guys! i love that you guys find these shots good when i was fairly disappointed with them because of the whole cars passing by fiasco! you motivate me to do better! xo

    @mafiosa honestly i kept trying for 20 minutes to an hour but i kept getting interrupted with the cars so i am not sure, most likely 15 - 20 minutes. :(

    :D They are great. But don't worry; I find you could go to the most remote places and there will still be a car driving around ruining your photos.
