    One of the most beautiful star trail scenes I’ve seen Wayne. Fabulous eye – the shot is simply breathtaking.

  • Thanks for the great rap … This was taken after you left the hospital the other night …

    incredible work. the trails and the light on the stone are amazing

  • Thanks
    I actually wanted a longer exposure so the startrails were longer, but I set the exposure time to expose the light on the building & while using the aperture to set the brightness of the stars
