Photo of the Week: July 9, 2012

     

Mysterious star trails encircle Polaris to create a dramatic backdrop silhouetting the Pryor Mountains on a clear night in Bighorn National Recreation Area.

This was actually my first attempt at capturing a star trail image.  Unlike last week’s featured photo, which was a composite made from stacking multiple exposures, this one is a single long exposure using my camera’s bulb setting to keep the shutter open for about 85 minutes.
