Automotive Astronomy

By Z_Driver
I took this photo out at BenF's farm. It's a '79 Ford F600 dump truck that was sitting in the middle of a field in the dead of winter. I shot a 12 min exposure and Ben walked around the truck painting it with a flashlight we had. He went inside the truck, flipped the lights, and painted the frost covered glass. I ran around with a flash trying to light up the foreground. The exposure was long enough to capture the star movement in the sky around the North star. A special thanks goes to Ben for helping out with the post processing work. It was a cold wait but well worth it.

One word... Awesome.

Great angle and nice lighting. The star trails adds the finishing touch.

Nice shot. Thanks for your kind comments on my photo. It looks much more colourful punchy in the flesh, it has lost somthing during the upload. I will try try out the North star looks fab!
