Artist's Description

This is a photoblend of 91 X 30 second exposures using the brilliant Startrails photoblend action that you can download from here
This is the 45 minute storm in one shot – in other words it’s the opposite end of the spectrum from the timelapse version I recently posted here
Trippy huh!
The large white streak in the sky is the moontrail, the little ones are startrails. The long lines sweeping across the sky are planes taking off and landing and the ones on the water are fishing trawlers.
A couple of curious things in this image. The first is the clear section of cloud above the main lightning strikes versus the blurred cloud around them. I think this is the result of these clouds being flashlit by each of the 20 odd lightning strikes whereas the other clouds were lit evenly by the moon in each image and hence blurred in the blend (hope that makes sense).
The other weird thing is that strange green line just above the middle planetrail near the centre of the image. It isn’t parallel to the startrails so isn’t one of them and satellites move so fast that one of those would have shown up as a long streak like the planetrails – any ideas?

Taken off the cliffs at Bundeena, Royal National Park, Sydney Australia.
