This star trail is a composite of 75 individual images I shot at Deam Lake State Recreation area in Borden, Indiana. I used a Nikon D7500 with a Rokinon 14mm lens and an intervalometer. I started off shooting with an ISO of 1600 for 15 seconds with an aperture of 2.8. As the sky got darker, I increased my ISO to 2000. The light pollution on the bottom right is the Louisville, Kentucky, metro area, including the towns of New Albany, Jeffersonville and Clarksville, Indiana. One of the reasons this image is among my favorites of 2019, my monochrome version of this image won 3rd place at this year’s Kentucky State Fair. I enjoyed going to the fair and overhearing people talk about my image and trying to figure out how I created it. I have to give a special shoutout to Brad Goldpaint for teaching me how to create this. Thanks Brad!
