Another go at shooting star trails out in the middle of nowhere under the dark of night – except we had a full moon this week so there was tons of ambient light about everywhere illuminating the foreground. This shot constitutes a blend of 27 individual digital shots at a shot per minute – each at ISO 800, f4, 20 seconds. After half an hour standing out in the dark and cold the call of beer was too loud and the process became very boring so the beer won.

It remains my ambition to one day shoot a full circle of a star orbit but I think I need to get one of those automatic remote time release cable thinga-me-job’s before I find the patience…
