Heaven And Earth

For Agnes.

Always watching over us. :heart:


Check out the 'Making Of' tutorial here: [link]

Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia.

63min exposure.

(1 x 8min base exposure for the foreground +
110 x 30sec exposures for the star trails)

The star trails are the result of the earth's rotation during the long exposure.

Was so nice to sit back, watch the stars and enjoy a big glass of red wine (or two) while this was running.

Hope you're all well! :D

That's just excellent! Always wanted to try this but I'm afraid my computer will totally crash trying to process a psd with 110 layers! It's worth trying though, lovely image!
