WV Capitol Building

Prev Night Exposure

I found myself in Charleston around 11 PM on a weekday with camera in hand and decided to get a few shots of the Capitol building.  I was amazed by the complete lack of traffic on the roads around the building so it made it easy to grab 20 or 30 second exposures without a vehicle passing by.  

I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had captured a few stars with this shot.  The lights to the right of my that shine on the capitol dome were causing so much light pollution in the sky that I didn't expect to see any.
