While I like star trail shots, this time I wanted to show the night sky more as it looks to the eye - which meant keeping the shutter speed as fast as possible, while still giving a reasonable exposure on the ground.
Composition was a bit of a compromise, but as the clouds move, you need to point the camera where the sky is clearest.
