I’ve always had a bit of an interest in shooting star trail photography but never really took it seriously. After recently watching some amazing time-lapse videos of starry nights in the mid-west I decided it was time to take my star trail hobby to the next level. Coastal South Carolina is a beautiful place by day and night, providing me with many great locations to shoot stunning star trails.
This shot was taken at the southern public beach access in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina. At this beach access the beach opens very wide, making it a popular place to visit during the summer. This dune fence has always been here for as long as I’ve lived in the area and provided a beautiful foreground object.
This is a total 92 minute exposure facing slightly northeast.
