Stunning Examples of Star Trails Photography

Timed exposures in the sky at night produce what are known as ‘star trails’ – enabling you to get some amazing star trail photos. 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.
