I got some amazing photos in Vail, Colorado! We were there for my aunt's wedding, and we stayed there some extra days to do some fun things around the area. We hiked on the mountain, biked, and went to an amusement park on the top of Vail Mountain and an amusement park in Glenwood Springs. I got some star and mountain photos, and I also got some cool pictures on the plane of the sunrise!
On the last night we were there, I hiked a little ways up the mountain in the middle of the night and set up my camera on a tripod with a remote shutter release. I set it to take continuous 30 second exposures for two hours of the stars. Two hours later, I went out and retrieved my camera. I combined all the photos together to form the beautiful star trails, and I also made a time-lapse of the stars, which you can view below.
