Star Trail Photography
This picture of star trails up near a cabin in Angel Fire, New Mexico. The choice in aperture for this long exposure was arbitrary as this was my first attempt at capturing star trails. The seclusion of the cabin along with the clear evening and high altitude made for dark skys and great conditions. I "painted" the trees with a flashlight in the last minute of the exposure.
