To honor International Dark Sky week, I captured these star trails across a field in the southern Adirondacks. I thought I'd share and hope you enjoy. There is still a some light pollution (lower right portion of the frame) from the City of Saratoga 20+ miles away. April 6, 2013.(This was my first successful attempt at something like this, I think it turned out pretty nice)
Star trails over Kingston NY 6/12/13 You can see a small meteor just right of center. And as a matter of fact, there's a second one (even smaller) on the bottom right (about a 1/4 in from the right and 1/4 up from bottom) it looks like a star without a trail since it was there for such a short amount of time.
The sun has already set over the Northeastern Catskill Mountains, leaving a beautifully colored twilight sky. -- Photo taken from Petersburg Pass State Forest in Schoharie County, New York. -- May 24, 2012.

While backpacking the Adirondack's Northville-Placid Trail, we took a side trail and discovered the "Miami River" which I captured among all the green foliage. Sept. 14, 2008. 1/4 sec, f/2.6, ISO 80, FL 5.8 mm. Canon PowerShot A540
