Been favoring Star Trails lately. Took the family to Redding California to check out Burney falls and the Sun Dial bridge. Added a 2nd layer because the sky seemed a bit boring to me.

The Sundial Bridge is beautiful because of its aqua green, opaque glass deck strips of granite, smooth white imported Spanish tile. The bridge is unique because of its design. The 217-foot pylon acts as a sundial, telling time on a tile covered garden border on the north side of the bridge. The designer of the bridge, world-renowned architect Santiago Calatrava, has said that, to him, the bridge resembles a bird in flight, and symbolizes the overcoming of adversity.

    Sweeeeet! I put out a journal entry about photographing star trails awhile ago and decided for now it was beyond me! So I will just look at this untill I take it on myself lol :) I love how you have incorporated the bridge in this as well adding more interest to the overall image. Awesome work Ben :)

  • Put a bit more work into this than I had originally planned. The Stars although abundant did not show up as well as I wanted, so I had to Duplicate the Layer 3 time so that it stood out more. The Sky I layered in later.
