Should I stay or Should I go
** Check out our new South East Queensland Meetup group here **
Somewhere in the middle of somewhere, QLD, Australia.
Matt, Josh, Steve and I took a drive west, to take advantage of the cooler weather last night, we knew the stars would be out, but, as always finding a few good spots to shoot is always the challenge!
Anyhow, we found some neat trees, roads, barns etc.
At about the 20 minute mark of this long exposure, Matt drive his car past to create the light trails, a trick we have employed before.
Funny story, well kinda funny, we were having so much fun, and after seeing some night mist develop we were considering staying out until dawn... should I stay or should I go... in the end we shot one last shot and headed home for Brisbane. Bed time: 3:45am, gotta love photography.

About the Sky
The sky is the part of the atmosphere or of outer space visible from the surface of any astronomical object. It is difficult to define precisely for several reasons. During daylight, the sky of Earth has the appearance of a deep blue surface because of the air's scattering of sunlight. The sky is sometimes defined as the denser gaseous zone of a planet's atmosphere. At night the sky has the appearance of a black surface or region scattered with stars.
During the day the Sun can be seen in the sky, unless covered by clouds. In the night sky (and to some extent during the day) the moon, planets and stars are visible in the sky. Some of the natural phenomena seen in the sky are clouds, rainbows, and aurorae. Lightning and precipitation can also be seen in the sky during storms. On Earth, birds, insects, aircraft, and kites are often considered to fly in the sky. As a result of human activities, smog during the day and light radiance during the night are often seen above large cities.
In the field of astronomy, the sky is also called the celestial sphere. This is an imaginary dome where the sun, stars, planets, and the moon are seen to be traveling. The celestial sphere is divided into regions called constellations.
