Stars Over the Bay

Stars Over the BayStars Over the BayJust two hours from the Great Falls, but far enough away to bring out the stars on a moonless night. A 20 second exposure gives time for the faint starlight to come through.
 

Stars Over the Bay – A dark night and a new moon, wispy clouds and bright stars.  The town of St. Michaels Maryland is just 80 miles from the national capitol.  Just far enough away from the city for the night sky to fill with stars.  Nestled in the sheltered Miles River which feeds the Chesapeake near Easton, the night sky overlooking the river is beautiful.  One particularly clear June evening I camped out on the lawn outside our townhouse and waited for the night to get dark.  As the stars began to emerge I wondered if the sleeping residents were dreaming about the spectacular overhead display. This 20 second exposure was shot just after midnight.   This is my “Stars over the Bay”.
