Ljusterö at Night

Ljusterö at Night

Walking through Tyresta National Park[a] at night was quite an experience. As a city dweller, I've only rarely seen the stars. When they're not covered by clouds, light from the ground does an effective job of blotting them out. Over the last few days I've tried to come up with ways to capture the night sky, and when I went to Ljusterö over the weekend I thought I'd give them a try. There's only so much you can do while theorizing at your computer. Therefore - here are the results of my attempts at astrophotography at Sillviken, Ljusterö.

This is the result of a 30 shot stack. The foreground and background were processed separately and merged in the final image.
