Star trails over our house. This was taken right at midnight. Look at how bright that sky is!!!
Again, the house, the bright horizon is from Beaverton/Tigard and beyond that, Portland. I keep hoping for a massive power outage so I can could get some nifty urban star trail photography wit exposures of an hour or so.
This one is my favorite of the lot. The tree and the kinetic sculpture making a nice foreground.
I had high hopes for this one. I lined the sculpture up with the northstar so the stars would swirl around the sculpture, making it look like a celestrial egg beater, but I think the image needs more stuff in the foreground to give it context.
The images, when viewed at full resolution, look far nicer, as you can see a lot more of the fainter stars and it gives you more of a sense of motion.
