Photographer's Note

Hi Guys! I've been away from TE for almost 6 months because of travelling (which I still am!), but I'll be uploading and critiquing again as often as possible.

The sky at night in Mongolia really is something to behold. I've been many places in the world that are renowned for having a clear sky but nothing even comes close to Mongolia!

This is my first ever attempt at a 'star trail' type photo. I'd seen them here before on TE so decided to give it a go. The exposure is ~25 minutes. I would like to have exposed it for longer but I had the camera set to 'reduce long exposure noise' which meant the battery had to last for 50 minutes in total, and at -5C I didn't fancy the batteries chances hence the short exposure.

The reds in the distance aren't any city, it's natural. The nearest city from where this photo was taken is hundreds of kilometres away!

Let me know what you think! :)
