This photo with the star trails and palm trees was taken only over 30 seconds? Doesn't seem right

Hi Ellen,
Thanks for asking about the exposure time. While Deborah does mention "30 seconds - setting the camera up for interval timer shooting", here's a longer explanation from another blog of hers:

"For consecutive exposures to create the star trails, I used the interval timer feature in my camera (Nikon D3s). Your camera may have this feature, or you can use an intervalometer. The interval timer on my camera is set to record one exposure (30 seconds) every 33 seconds for as many shots as my battery will allow."

Hope this makes better sense!
