Artist's Description

January 4th, 2012
North Bend, Nebraska

Shot this star trail while out with a couple friends in January watching the Quadrantid meteor shower. We saw well over a hundred meteors, but nearly all of them were too dim to show up on camera. My best stuff from the night ended up being star trails and timelapses instead of the fireballs we had hoped for. Regardless, I can’t complain with how this image came out. I won’t lie, I did adjust the colors with this one. I usually keep my colors within the realm of realism, but I decided to liberally apply some vibrance to this one and give it warmer tones (maybe I just don’t want to remember how cold my toes were!). One side note, that’s the moon setting in the lower right, not a day/night compilation image.

Canon 60D
f/3.5, ISO 2000, 10-15 seconds
365 stacked images (total time: 1hr 23 mins)

Thanks for viewing! :)
