 The Stars above Vis Harbor. I loved the town of Vis and the island of Vis - lovely quiet little place off the coast of Croatia. See more of it including an animation of this star stacking AND one angry hooded crow that really wanted to take out my drone! http://photorec.tv/croatia Captured with the #GH5 and 12-60 f/2.8-4 Lens | 41 exposures of 60 seconds in length - done in camera - the GH5 allows up to 60 second shutter speeds. Nifty!
