    Star trail photography. Finally got around to having a go for the first time. My venue was Kirkmaiden cemetary,Mull of Galloway.

    Shot these on a new moon. For each final image I stacked 120 x 30 second exposures apart from the last one. It started to rain so it was only about 30 stacked images.

    Was quite happy with my very first attempt at this but plan to have another go sometime in the future :)
