Twilight Zone by mewantsbekungfoo Twilight Zone by mewantsbekungfoo
My very first star trails image!!! clocking in at a whopping 1hr 34min. & 27 seconds!!! i'm super excited... i worked very hard on this... waiting for the perfect night... waiting on the perfect weather... waiting on the the moon to be right... finding a location... tracking the north star... yada yada...

but here it is and i'm so happy!!! also, this is my first deviation of 2009 - it represents personally breaking new ground in photography and working harder and trying new things... which is what i hope 2009 has more of in store for me...

wishing everyone a wonderful, happy and prosperous new year!!! :D

Help, I'm steppin' into the Twilight Zone
Place is a madhouse
Feels like being cloned
My beacons been moved
Under moon and star
Where am I to go Now that I've gone too far

Soon you will come to know
When the bullet hits the bone

Beautifully done. I've seen (and taken) many shots similar to this, but this is perhaps one of the best I've seen. This is amazing. Very well done.

Beautiful, I love the colours! Great work :)
Does the sky's brightness come from the fact that it's a long exposure, or was it really like that?
But yeah, great stuff, and happy new year :D
