Swatting Circles

Switching to star trails exposures I set the camera running and left it to go and headed back to our nearby cosy campfire to wait

NIKON Z 7 + 14.0 mm f/2.4 @ 14 mm, 120 sec at f/2.4, ISO 640 x 47 Frames

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

This image was taken whilst standing in the Northern Territory but facing across the border into South Australia

There was lots of scrubby bushes around which I didn’t want to include in my composition. So I had to get closer to this lone tree and point upwards from below to exclude everything else I didn’t want

As we’re heading so far north the southern celestial pole is moving lower in the sky. This makes it trickier to include the centre of the swirl in compositions as we go further and further north 🙂
