Trails of Erendil

A slow, electric trail - a shooting star
unveils the cosmic hue of silent night
renewing wishes - silver scimitar
fulfilling dreams of everlasting light.

    This is my second session trying to eternalise stars perhaps long gone from the real spectrum (but that's another story).. I am getting the hang of it, if only at gutterly level:) My focus is right, my timing is better. Not too exposed, a bit stuttery.
    This one is a combined shooting of some 50 photos, totalling up to one our. The small interval is the one second to write the photo and start another one. This is my remote doing that. Progress next time, no less:)
    These are the stars I adore, every time the sky is right. And that is less often than I would like to, but today it was cold, clear and lovely.

    More to come! Another day, another play:)

      1. Wish upon a falling star;) or is it shooting star;) i was planning such a shot for a few months now, yesterday being the second day in that range with a sky suitable for shooting startrails. The first day i was utterly swimming iwork and had no time at all. Posted 7 years ago, modified 7 years ago

  3. Thanks Ferdy! Yes, for my first really decent try I am satisfied. Of course I noticed I was off coarse in my focus, not the center I had expected it to be, but next time I'll try again:) Posted 7 years ago
  4. Only a very few days of clear view, so many clouds ahead of us:) Posted 7 years ago
