A 923 second exposure of the Papoa island, located in Peniche, Portugal.

It's always hard to get decent long exposure shots here, because it's one of the most windy spots in Portugal.

I also miss my 10-20mm lens, since it took a dive in the ocean it was never the same again, so this was with a 18-105.

Editing consists of several layers and masks to enhance the sky, since it was a bit washed out to begin with,

Needs more sky and less rock on the bottom but then again you would need to be a very steady bird or mountain goat to make that shot! :)
Great location, I didn't knew about it.

Star trails are so frustrating to shoot. Over all you have done a good job. The yellow lighting takes away from the impact of the stars. Love the blurred water and clouds.

I like the effect of this long exposure. Especially the clouds.
