    Thanks for info Renée! Again a very nice capture. I just finished shooting the Orion nebula in Teton National Park with a D4 24mm f/1.4 and 85 f/1.4 for single point stars and to bring out the color of the nebula. Being from Chapel Hill (NC) your post obviously got my attention!

    • Thanks for stopping by, Barney. And that’s why I added the words Shandon, California, to the end of the post title. Don’t want it confused with the city of Chapel Hill. LOL.

      I hope I get to see your photos of Orion. The Tetons are gorgeous. A great foreground to shoot the night sky! Lucky you have fixed lenses with very low f stops. Those will help capture even more stars.

  • Great little video, too!

    • Thanks, Mimi. I had nearly forgotten that there is an export video function in Lightroom’s Slideshow Module. It worked like a charm.

  • Beautiful work, as usual. I’m going to have to find that hill and make the trip to the top one of these days. I’ve been wondering where I can find a high hill for daytime shots. I have only been to Shandon once, years ago.

    I’m going to share this on tsu, since I’ve made friends with a lot of photographers there who might like to see this and who might understand the technical aspects better than I. It’s a good place to publicize work.

    • Thanks so much, Barb. Appreciate your comments. You really MUST visit Chapel Hill. I’m amazed you’ve never been out there. Spectacular views from high on the hill. The chapel is just gorgeous.

      It is located just off Highway 46 East and McMillan Canyon Road. Easy to spot on a Google satellite map. Just turn left on McMillan Canyon Road (near the big water fountain opposite 46) and you will see it.

      Not familiar with TSU but will check it out. Thanks so much again.

    • Thanks, Mimi. Glad you enjoyed it. Not too shabby for my first attempt at using new star stacking software. But the chapel certainly needed more light painting.
