The Southern Ocean pounds relentlessly into the coastal cliffs on the Tasman Peninsular, Tasmania.

Three hour star trail image made from 350 thirty second exposures. The foreground is just an individual frame from the timelapse sequence, as when all the foregrounds were stacked together the constant breaking waves turned the sea completely white. Whilst it looks like the foreground is a daytime exposure it was taken about two hours after sunset and the whole scene is being lit by the light of an almost full moon. The streak running through the center of frame is the International Space Station

I am looking forward to trying some star trails for the first time when I head out to the Corner Country. Any suggestions for the best time to start shooting Greg? I notice that you used ISO 400 which to me indicates that it wasn't a very dark night.

Can't wait to see what you capture out there. Love that area of Australia. This was taken during a pretty much full moon so yes, not very dark. This is a great tutorial on star trails [link]

An exceptional piece of work, Greg :clap: Love the foreground and the way it is lit and the elongated star trails from the wide angle lens makes for an interesting vortex. Well done my friend! :clap:

Thank you so much :D No. The southern cross is not the south celestial pole. It only points the way to the south celestial pole [link]

This reminds me of Van Gogh's 'Starry Night'...which happens to be one of my favourites.

As always, absolutely beautiful. :+fav:
