This is one of my first few attempts at star trails, which I decided to finally try a couple weeks back, on a night where there were supposed to be a meteor shower but alas, it was no good, so I bundled up, grabbed a french press of tea, and tried it out. Now this one was not that one however a few attempts later on various night and finally this one, I'm pretty happy with it, although it is not the best that has been taken and I don't think it's the best I'll ever take but nonetheless for how little experience I have I like it! I especially liked it and named it for the reason that the stuff closer is a bit orangeish/red and then the further off is a lot cooler tones! I hope you like it as well, feel free to tell me what is good and what's bad.
Also, I want to dedicate this one to Greg Gibbs (
) as he is probably the biggest inspiration for me to do this, and for that I want to thank him, if you haven't heard of him or haven't seen his stuff then go make it happen
