Star Trails at The Balconies, Grampians National Park, Australia, 27/12/2013
One of the reasons I love taking images at night is you can have whole locations to yourself. During the day this iconic vista is positively crawly with tourists, but as soon as the sun goes down they all leave.
I have been wanting to do this image for a long time now. In fact I once did a 16 hour round trip in an attempt to capture an aurora display from here but was thwarted by clouds. Finally got another chance last week whilst I was in the area visiting family over the festive season.
Canon 5DMkII, 14mm, F/2.8, ISO 1600, 60 times 30 second exposures. First image taken as the last glow of sunset faded on the horizon. Stacked in StarStax.
