wow, this is great,

If it wasn't for the star trails I would have said it had been taken in daylight.

40 minutes! Amazing what these sensors can pick up that's totally lost to our night vision.

I bet that was a spooky place to be at night!!! Great shot - I've been experimenting with star trails recently, but use the stacking method rather than a single exposure (nothing to this standard yet though!).

Cheers guys Smile
This was done with the stacking method Stuart, each shot was 5 and a half minutes long.
