Happy Trails

Polvadera, NM (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Having awoken at 2:30 AM and an hour later realizing there was no hope for more sleep, I decided to drag my camera into the front yard and take a star trails image. This is a 90 minute exposure looking north toward Polaris and the Big Dipper. Note to self: remove those pesky lights around the base of the trees before you do this again!

I think those pesky lights create a lovely, ghostly quality. Great picture and a very well deserved AC.

Is this a 90 bulb exposure or stacked time lapse? Love the background landscape.

I wouldn't know where to begin to capture this kind of image, so I guess those "pesky lights" would be the last thing on my mind. The results are wonderful!

About mcgino

mcgino

As a former astronomer I am an avid sky watcher. I have lived in New Mexico for about 10 years and am constantly amazed by the beautiful skies. My favorite subjects to photograph are the skies of course, cats (I rescue strays), and robots (I have a HUGE collection). If you would like to see more photographs of any of the above be sure to visit my websites at www.mcgino.com or www.inlightfulimages.com Thanks for looking! Colleen
