I walked up and down along the edge of the cliff for a bit and concluded that the spot where I was the best spot. So, I retraced my footsteps and re-settled there. Since I was not able to compose all three elements — the Milky Way, waterfalls and Acrodectes Peak and Mt. Baxter, I decided to do star trails. And I really liked how it came out. 900 seconds were long enough to not only let the stars to leave visible trails behind them but also let me pull crisp details in the hills as well as the cascading waterfalls.
