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...

306 photos wow that is insane it is beautiful and it looks like u got a shooting star towards the bottom i was shooting stars last night and missed like 5 of them trying to shoot something else how did u get the beautiful orange/gold lighting in the back ground

i have been on night/star shooting bender lately trying new techniques and refining the ones i had i'm actually trying to put together a series of all of the ancient Hawaiian constellations

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.

Great composition =) I don't typically like orange, but there's something about it in this context that feels rather soothing.
