Needle in Time [C_036480-589br]

A quick study in what might be possible. Unfortunately I was not well prepared. At least I proved in theory that a Star Circle surrounding the Space Needle is possible. Urban star trails are not simple, however!


This would have definitely worked better in portrait mode. The bugaboo was avoiding the glaringly bright light that you see in the lower left. No, that's not the light, that's RIMLIGHT off the top of my black knit hat while I strategically stood there to block the unwanted light and waited to capture enough images.


Where is this shooting location exactly? Here's your hint: 7-11; 39-40.
