WPC: curve

This week’s topic for the weekly photo challenge by “The Daily Post” is “curve”.

My second try of taking stars trails.

The first try was more than 30 years ago on analog film, when I sat in the countryside for an hour and the lab cut my image into 2 pieces – now, we have too much light pollution here to see many stars and you always have lights from cities, houses and/or streets in you image

Take care have a great weekend!

  1. It looks fantastic 🙂 I am yet to try this one , i need a tripod first 😁

      • yes, it’s definitely incredible!
        I saw the full stary sky when I was in remote areas of Cuba and again in northern Norway. There are way less stars visible here in Europe. All the big cities emit so much light. It doesn’t get really dark anymore. NASA an ESA publishing images from space where you can see all the lights down on earth. For a good photo of the stars, you have to be about 70 km (~45 miles) away from every light source like cities, illuminated streets, factories and so on. Here we have so many towns and villages, that it is nearly impossible to get so far away from every village or town.

    • yes, it was on accident.
      It was common for a lab, when not ordered otherwise, to cut a developed film in pieces. One piece consisted of 4 or 5 images. But, in this case, it was a slide film. Usually, these films came framed or unframed back. Unframed films were left uncut. But, not this one 😦 It was ordered unframed, but it came back cut like a normal film. I guess, the cutter has though, this frame were underexposed.
