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.

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
