Desired Constellation

The lack of clouds make boring sunsets, but perfect for shooting the stars in the nights sky. It was a clear night and the stars were really visible, so I decided to visit the protected salt marshes of Chiclana de la Frontera (Cádiz) around 1 o´clock in the night to give this technique a try. I worked by torchlight, composing and focusing by taking practice shots as most of the details in this shot weren't visible to the naked eye. To record this light, the camera was set to a high ISO and the aperture was wide open.
