Star Trails Above Split Mountain In the Anza-Borrego Desert

I shot this from inside Split Mountain while camping with some photographer friends.

To produce this image, I shot 91 frames each at 45 sec f/2.8 ISO 2000 with my Canon 6D and Sigma 15mm EX DG lens. Shooting longer exposures at a lower ISO allowed me to bring out the colors in the stars a bit better. Frames stacked into star trails via StarStaX.

Some clouds caused a bit of discoloration in the lower left half of the sky here.
