Hanbury-church-snow-star-trails

This is Hanbury Church, near Bromsgrove.

It is a 28 minute exposure stacked up out of 30 second exposures..

I used the startrails.exe action in photoshop to stack the images (Easy to get it in google for free).

Sigma 10 - 20 at 10mm , F5.6, ISO 800

Flashed at full power twice in the last exposure from the left side of the camera.

A small amount of dodging and burning was also added.

 

Sat alone in a graveyard on top of a hill in the snow for an hour at minus 8 degrees for this one!

The star trails swoop in two directions as the camera is pointed between the two pole stars, so showing the celestial equator.

 

This is probably my favourite star trail photo so far :-)
