Thanks, Deborah. The time involved in any good star trails shot is daunting. I mean, how does one pass the time waiting while the sky turns for two hours? It helps to have company.

What an intriguing and original perspective, Art, you must have used a longgggg lens for this, that bluff being some distance away! Another spectacular spectral creation, congratulations and best of luck with this in the finals!

Alas, the GP eludes me, but I'm having
a pretty good roll this month as far
as recognition and publishing goes.

Well this is no doubt a winner. I used to shoot star trails and have always been intrigued with the sky. You have done them justice in this photo.

Is this suppose to be a photoshop picture?

My question is ... where is this picture taken ... that the northstar is on the horizon?

I had to move the sky down a few degrees
to get it to sit behind the lightouse.
That's the Pt. Reyes LIghthouse and
the approach to it was closed so I
couldn't get underneath it to face north.

Truth is, I thought this picture was
the biggest flop, and almost threw it
away. Of course it's a photoshop picture. I didn't mean to deceive.
I'm known here for my Pshop manipulations.
