Shooting … stars

Two days ago was the new moon, the best moment to take pictures of the sky. So I took my camera and my tripod and went along the coast to try to shoot the stars.

The French Riviera is a very dense place with a lot of lights, so not the best place to have clean shots of the stars. However there is a small reserve stuck between two cities where the landscape is beautiful and the lights are few, that’s where I went.

Equipped with my Canon EOS 700D and my wonderful Sigma 18-35mm F1.8, I took this :

I found this experience very magical, the camera is like a magic eye. Once correctly configured it is able to see beautiful things that the naked eye can’t see.
