Image Details:

My first attempt at a Moontrail. Long exposure(s) like with Star Trails but this began right at sunset with a full moonrise so with even 9 stops of ND I had to take 3 shots to get this result. Taken over "Salt Run" near the St Augustine Lighthouse looking east toward Anastasia State Park and the open Atlantic beyond that. Total exposure time was about 24 minutes.
