Hi Penny, I love how it portrays the rotation of the Earth. I seem to click alot on star trail shots these days. Some great examples on here.

By the way, your links don't work. I think you've put the "link" and "link text" bits the wrong way round! Smile

Probably one of the best star trail shots I've seen.

I tried the links too and agree they're probably the wrong way round - but they can be copied and pasted into your browser

EDIT: Ah, I see you've changed the links now Smile

Thanks for the comments & the link problem, you're right I did it in haste, never a good idea. I hope they work now.Smile
Orion shone out so brightly last Monday night when coming home without a camera, I bet it will be really cloudy all week now I want to count stars.

Wonderful what you can do with a very long exposure and PS filter circular blur. If it were mine I would crop the top 3rd off the sky or is it important that we see it all ? Smile

Thanks Mavis but no circular blur,it's all from the camera. This one isn't so much about composition as the entirety of the trails. What you see is the movement of the earth against the stars. Instead of leaving the shutter open for over 2 hours, which would result in too much noise, I took 130 identical pictures using a remote then stacked them with a free downloadable programme so you can see the trails in all their glory. I particularly enjoy seeing the different colours.
The effect of the light pollution above the huts can be clearly seen even though it's in a very good part of the country.
