Akatarawa Star Trails - my photo is a visual representation of how the earth is rotating around the sun which is the essence of what we base time from.
It was captured between 1:30-2:30am at the top of Akatarawa Hill, Upper Hutt. Made up of 120 individual photos, 30 second exposures for each. Using a Canon 60D, Canon EFS 15-85mm Lens, compiled using StarStaX and minor edits done in Photoshop CS5.
I had hoped to present this as a video that “swirls” but didn’t have After Effects to export it as a video.
