Night Photography - Star Trails in Colorado

201/365: star.trails.🌌📷🙃

“the darkest nights produce the brightest stars.”

i had an opportunity to photograph the night sky recently and decided to try a new technique for capturing star trails.

my past star trail photos have been a sequence of stacked images in photoshop.

this star trail photo is a single image for an exposure time of 60 minutes. this is my one and only night photo from my recent trip as the skies did not cooperate for more. i’m thankful for this beautiful shot.

feel free to share – photos like this remind me how small i really am and how much i have yet to discover about myself and the universe around me.
