15 miles north of Florence on HWY 101.
Star trails along HWY 101 at Big Creek on the Oregon Coast. Taken on 8/26/2017. Nikon D810, Nikon 14-24 f2.8 lens, Manfrotto tripod, ISO 31, f 2.8, 3705 sec. ex.
I like this location because of the position of the north star relative to the highway and bridge. There is very little traffic on this section of Hwy 101 in the middle of the night and most of it is headed north which provide the light trails. When a vehicle was headed in direction of the camera I simply covered the lens until it passed.
