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)

I thought the city of San Francisco's waterfront looked pretty neat at night. I used a high aperture value to get the dazzle of the lights, which I thought added a nice effect on the long exposure.

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.
