The Vortex

We spin and spin and spin, but few of us notice how fast the Earth makes it's crazy turns except in the few moments where the sun comes up or goes down. Well, if you stare long enough into the night, you can get the feeling that you're being pulled into a swirling mass of stars.

A 54 minute exposure just before midnight last night. Got a little help from a fellow Flickr and MBP member on how to process. Still need to try out some other techniques, but I think this turned out well.

My entry for this week's photo assignment - In the Midnight Hour.
