Anselmo-20 Minute Star Trail Exposure

This is the Anselmo Mine uptown. It is a twenty minute exposure, the longest exposure I’ve ever done. I came up with a new technique for shooting long exposures at night…I set the tripod up right outside the drivers-side window of my Bonneville, then use my remote to set off the exposure. So during the 20 minutes, I can roll the window up and be warm and listen to my music. And my camera is within arms distance so it for sure won’t get stolen. AND I don’t get too creeped out being alone in the dark taking photos.

Anyway, back to this photo. The color looks really strange. The head frame looks gold while the sky looks kinda orange or copper. I think it’s because the only light was coming from the street lights.
