Gateway to the Stars

Ok so I haven't been around much lately. I have been busy with a new child in the house and haven't had any time to get out and about. I have been trying to get a decent star trails shot for some time now and had picked this spot because there was a nice old barn here ....where??

Well it turns out that because the barn was in a fairly bad state it had to be torn down just two days before I got there!

 

Ben -

This was 12 - 4 minute exposures stacked in photoshop.

1 - 30 second exposure for the foreground was taken with flash off camera right set on manual at 1/4 power.

I went up there with a friend and I was talking up the barn all the way there..well he thought it was funny that it was gone, I kind of saw the funny side. Anyway it was a big drive so I thought I would take some pictures anyway.

So I guess this could also be titled "Insert Barn Here"

Hope everyone is having a great weekend :-)
