    What's with the bright dots?

    I was out at sunrise taking a few pics and all of my long exposures have these random colored dots. What is going on?

    stars maybe? seems like it cause it looks like a slight start trail.

    the red dots are hot pixels. you can probably get rid of it with high exposure NR. I believe LR automatically maps out hot pixels too.

    The white dots in the sky are stars. I checked some pics from my brother-in-law to make sure.
    This is the first time that I've tried such long exposures. I'll try again with the long exposure NR turned on. Thanks.

    Where is this? It is really beautiful and with the correct lighting it would potentially make a lovely HDR.

    The brightest "star" is probably Venus (facing east?), a planet . ("morning star")

    I think you're right. It is an east facing beach.
