Star Trails On Silver Creek, Idaho

Star Trails & Bridge.  Silver Creek, Idaho

I just got back from the Nature Conservancy section of Silver Creek after taking a few long exposure images.  It was about 20 degrees and windy.  Just after starting my first exposure a beaver exploded at the surface and scared the daylights out of me.  It was dark, and got the front element of my lens wet.  I started over again and got this image.  Lots to work on here, but it's a start...  I used the long exposure noise reduction option on my Nikon D3S and it took roughly 90 minutes to finish processing after the shutter closed.  It was an approx. 61 minute exposure.
