Ashland, NE

While out shooting the Lyrid meteor shower with fellow photographer Cody Ervin, I set up this star trail at the base of the abandoned Beetison Mansion in Ashland, NE (built in 1876). Only caught a couple meteors (had some clouds roll in later), but it was still a fun night! Nice to get out to shoot somewhere new. I’ll have to keep this location in mind as it has some serious “creepy” potential ;) Still has a fair bit of light pollution, but that can make for some very interesting colors when you mess with the vibrance of the scene (yes, I tweaked the colors to be more vivid :P) =D

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

Love how the centre of the circle is right between the two branches of the tree, it looks like the stars are revolving around it

ahh!! I just love star trail pictures, and I think you did a great job! And you tweaked the vibrancy in this shot just right! It's not too much where it looks like a coloring book, but just enough to add some amazingness. haha Nice!

I have! Was trying to figure out how exactly one merges that lol. Constantly looking south for daylight, constant north for night (since you can't move it during a star trail) and then I guess his extra six hours were for everything in between. Really interesting :o
