Joshua Tree National Park startrails - Barker Dam

I’ve caught some decent MW reflections in bodies of water but never startrails so I was excited to dig into this one. The wind had died down a few hours after sunset so after shooting some other trails, I setup here to try our luck at capturing these reflections. Every now and then gusts of winds would come and disturb the still water, so we just ran our lapse and hoped for the wind to stay calm and luckily it did. The trailing reflections in the water are almost perfect. I made sure to frame in Polaris and the reflection of it as well. I should have positioned the camera slightly lower but still happy with how it came out. Was an awesome trip seeing the dam full of water as it has been pretty dry for the past few years.
