I'm Rob, the editor of Light Stalking. I try to keep this ship on course.

Timed exposures of the sky at night produce what are known as ‘star trails.’ The movement of the earth makes the exposure of the stars like that of a moving object that produces lines of light. If combined with a well composed image, the results can be quite striking. This collection of star trail photography shows some great examples of this photographic niche which we really enjoyed. Check out the tutorials at the end of the post if you want to know more about star trail photography.
