Uluru Star Trails by CainPascoe Uluru Star Trails by CainPascoe
Uluru a.k.a Ayres Rock, NT, Australia.

I found an angle where the full moon lit the rock and the southern point in the sky was most visible. Let my camera take around 80 shots, each 30secs long and this is what i got:D

EDIT: pulled a little more colour and light out of the scene(mostly the sky) also ditched the cropped foreground

I absolutely love long exposure photos of the sky such as this one. There's something about the circular shape of the star lights that remind me of neon city lights despite the setting of the photograph.

It often takes an image such as this for us to realize that we really are just standing on a spinning rock in a motionless universe. The odd color of the earth coupled with its brightness add to the otherworldly effect as well.

At first I couldn't tell whether a fish eye lens was used or the hills naturally made that concave shape at the bottom, and to be honest, I still can't. ^^; The level plateau behind this geographical phenomenon creates quite an interesting optical illusion also.

The only thing that really bothers me about this image is that watermark. I know the artist feels the need to protect his work, but it really takes a lot of quality out of the photograph in my opinion...
What do you think?

Hey thats pretty cool. But how did you managed it to stay there after the closing hour. Were you hiding in the bush :-). In Back in 2009 i tried the same, but gotta disturbed by a ranger...

Haha pretty much! I parked my car and walked back along the road a bit, went off into the scrub and got really low. I wasn't really happy with the composition/angle I was getting but it was quiet and I wasn't disturbed:D

Yea, better than waiting on a parking area. Next time :-).
You havenīt got the best angle but itīs more important to have
the southern star in the middle of your photo!
