Having been bitten by the bug for star trail photograpy, last night the moon and weather tied up nicely so there would be minimal cloud and no moon – perfect for star trail photography. I took myself, two cameras, food and my tent up onto Rhossili Down. I took my tent to keep me warm as the forecast was for 5 degrees C – it’s a great tent – two poles and for pegs and it’s up, plus it’s good in storms and snow too and weighs next to nothing – it’s the MacPac Minaret if you’re interested. Anyway, it was a great location apart from being on the side of the hill – literally as the tent was at quite an angle! I took several photos, so here they are:
And finally the star trails photo – this is an hour photo and the wide angle shows the stars that circle both the north and south pole.
