one tree star trail

Not the most imaginative title, but nothing else sprang to mind.

 

It was a cold clear night so I grabbed the camera and headed west. I am still very much learning how to compose and effectively capture star trails and unlike most normal shots, the trial and error aspect is greatly exaggerated as a "single shot" can take a night. 124 30 second shots plus a 1min, 4 min and 8min to finish it up and try and give the trails some movement, although it didn't work out quite how I hoped.

 

I like this tree so i can see myself revisiting it in the near future to try again....
