Bedruthan Steeps by night

By mattw  
The sky was perhaps a little hazy for stars, but the moon light was nice and bright, so I decided to try for a star trail anyway.

So what if it was a bit nippy?

I caught a strange streak near the horizon – does not look like a plane - possibly a meteor?

25 minute exposure

Magic, Matt!!

Meteors, in my experience, generally don't turn upwards, so it looks like you've shot a flying saucer Smile

Cheers

Excellent. Very effective...but how did you manage to keep warm? It must have been the longest 25 minutes ever.

Fleece, coat and a ‘head scarf’ thing which is insanely warm. There was very little wind, so it was actually rather pleasant.

I thought it wa a daylight shot at first from the thumbnail. Half an hour well spent.

One of the most beautifully balanced night shots I've seen on here for a while Matt, excellent work.

Just seen on the BBC website that a just few miles away, Padstow harbour froze over that same night. LOL!

25 minutes in these temperatures?! Now, that's what I call suffering for your art!

The thumbnail doesn't do this justice, Matt. The star trails are impressive, but I also love the effect of the long exposure on the sea. As for that strange trail....hmmm, I can see Ufologists working overtime on explaining it. Smile
