Nice to see a star trail shot with a proper foreground. That sky color is just awesome. Great work!

Hi there. Beautiful shot. Was this taken on digital or film? The camera details doesn't show. If it was with digital, how did you deal with the noise usually associated with these long exposures?
almumen's avatar
thanks. I used the digital way of photographing star trails. I added a link in the description for details.

Camera: my previous DSLR: Nikon D200
