Windmill Trail

I've been shooting star trails for about the past two years and have really enjoyed the look that you can achieve with movement of the stars.  This one today is a rather short trail but it achieves the look I was going for.  I have yet to get a 2+ hour star trail in the books, but I hope to someday.

I'm also a big fan of shooting at night period.  It's amazing to me how one scene can appear one way during the day and then you return 12 hours later and get a completely different shot.  I'm hoping to pick up some faster glass as soon as it becomes available again (Tokina 11-16 f/2.8) but it seems to be on back order until the end of the century.  :)  I've thought about the Canon 16-35 but since I'm on a crop body, I would prefer to have more of a wide angle lens like the Sigma 10-20 I have now.

Hope you all have a great weekend with some amazing light.  Cheers.
