Geminid Meteor and Star Trails Above the Salton Sea

Check out the meter (and awesome reflection in the water) about 2/3rd of the way to the right.

I produced this image by combining 76 frames in StarStaX. Each frame shot using my Canon 6D and Sigma 15mm at f/2.8 10 sec ISO 3200. I spent nearly three hours removing airplane trails in Photoshop.

I shot this at the old abandoned Naval Station at the Salton Sea.

The conditions were perfect for nighttime photography - clear skies and almost no wind.

I shot MANY more photos at this location and will be processing and posting them over the next few days.
