About This Blog

I began this blog in 2011 in an attempt to improve my photography and showcase all of California's 58 counties. I didn't quite make all of the 58, I missed three and I will try to rectify that in the coming year. I'm not sure how much I improved my photography because I always seemed to be in a rush.
In 2012 I plan to take more time, perhaps not post every day (this is one thing I did accomplish in 2011). I also plan to expand beyond California and include images from other parts of Western United States. I will continue to include a map showing where I was when I took the picture. I will keep commentary to a minimum, long photo essays will continue to be at Martha's Musings.

Love this!

This is awesome!! For how many minutes did you have the shutter open? Such a cool shot! You can see the curvature of their paths (well, really, it's the movement of the earth).

Wonderful shot, Martha. I have the same question as Pat... just curious to know the exposure time.

Martha Z said...

It was a 20 min exposure, f9, ISO 400
