Most of us have seen amazing photos taken at night. Be it star trails or the reflections of a cities lights in the ocean, or the streams of brake lights approaching a curve on the highway these sorts of photos always capture our imagination. As a photographer I should always be pushing myself towards more and more challenging work. I’ve tried to shoot star trails with mixed results as you can see below. This shot was taken outside Oxford Mississippi. I’d gone out trying to get photos of meteors, but didn’t have any real luck with that. So, I set the camera and tripod up to capture the motion of the stars behind the tree. The exposure was eight minutes long, and as you can see, I still had no luck capturing any meteors despite this having been the busiest night for the Percied shower.
