Static Stars by DrewHopper Static Stars by DrewHopper
Static stars over an old wooden boat on the Nambucca River, Mid North Coast - Australia NSW. I wanted to go to this spot for sunset but unfortunately it was low tide so the boat was beached onshore. I checked the tide times to see what time high tide was, 9:42pm. I used my LED headlight here to light paint the boat, whilst the street light behind me helped brighten the horizon. It was such a beautiful night standing in complete silence with just the sound of the odd fish jumping out of the water. I'm glad the tide forced me out at night to capture this shot.

One of the most clear and beautiful shots of the night sky I ever saw. The stars and their reflection in the water came out just terrific!

Great shot mate. It's really wonderful. I really like the boat not being too 'ghosty'.

But I have a question:
Do you live in an area with a lot of light pollution? I would love to make a shot like this but I live in quite a polluted area when it comes to light. Particularly the regions close to the water are quite light.

Not really much light pollution at this location, although there were street lights behind me. They worked on my behalf though, helped me paint the boat here. Cheers.
