Starry Night Over Davenport
I made my way south in the early afternoon, and just took some lazy strolls along the beach and on the bluffs overlooking the ocean, waiting for the sun to set. I couldn't complain, as the temperature was in the high 60's. Once the sun set, the landscape began to take on a different feel. The fine mist from the crashing waves below created a very thick and hazy atmosphere. I watched from my setup, as cars drifted down Highway 1; their headlights appearing to cut through the thick air for miles.
I think I decided to leave too early. While the sky looked dark enough to the naked eye, the camera has better night vision, and was able to pull out light along the horizon from the sun that had set over an hour earlier. If you look closely, you can see the milky way faintly on the right hand side of the sky, and venus is a bit hazy as it settles behind some clouds. Any tips or pointers on how to bring the stars out would be much appreciated!
