430 Years by wreck-photography 430 Years by wreck-photography
It takes 430 years for the light from Polaris (the north star) to arrive on earth... It travelled all that way to get sucked into the lens of my camera and chucked into my gallery...

306 photos stacked ontop of one another, then a panoramic making up the lower part.

F/3.5 - 8sec exp - ISO800 - About 40mins of the earths rotation.

As you can imagine it is pretty boring standing in a field for 40 mins in the cold... what really made it painful was the church about 30 meters away from me decided tonight would be a good night to ring its bells constantly for 30 of the minutes...

Good times...

The orange glow was from a distant city and low clouds, i was worried it was going to ruin the image but it defiantly adds to it.

Have you checked out Startrails.de? its the way i create these type of shots.

Man, this is really magical! Your time and talent really paid off once again. All your starlight photos are amazing but this one with the warm sky tones is a killer! Kudos :flame:
