Shooting Stars

Glen Canyon Dam is a hydro electric dam near Page, Arizona.  The dam regulates flow from the Colorado River basin and its reservoir is Lake Powell, which is the second largest artificial lake in the country. The stars were bright at night while we were there so with Ryan Wright and I ventured just outside of Wahweap Bay and did some long exposures. The lights from the electric facility was bright along the horizon and made this image appear as if it were cannon shooting stars into the sky.

I processed this image using David Kingham Night Photography Lightroom Presets.  These are great tools to use for processing astrophotography!  Be sure to give him a donation for his efforts in creating these presets.
