Sparks Lake Sunset

Our Saturday excursion to Sparks Lake for star trails photography started earlier in the evening for the sunset. The sunset wasn’t particularly dramatic without any clouds in the sky. The red-orange color in the background is smoke from a wildfire off in the distance. But there were people out in their canoes and kayaks enjoying the gorgeous weather and I took a few shots while waiting for it to get dark enough to start the star trails. Once I started the intervalometer and my camera was taking photos automatically, I used my Sony camera to take some photos of the stars and the trees. I had an hour to kill while waiting for my star trails to finish so I figured I could do something useful.
