Bidwell Stars over Big Chico Creek

This photo took some doing. As my arm was still healing from a break the previous summer, I walked out to this spot in Upper Bidwell Park rather than riding my bike. Once I had managed to maneuver my way down to the river I had to figure out a stable way to suspend my tripod over the river to make this long exposure. I also planned on making a star trail so was down there sitting on a rock in the middle of the river for about 2 hours. That image did not turn out. But the time spent down there reading did a good job of draining my head lamp's battery so the walk back to the car got a little dark... All in all a good little adventure, and lessons are always learned. Crop suggestion: 4x6 or any 2:3 ratio
