Facing south east over Mount Nongkok, a lesser mountain by the foot of Mount Kinabalu of Kinabalu National Park, clusters of stars marked its paths one cloudy night.
The best star trails photos are when the night sky is populated by the major clusters, but void of the moon and drifting clouds. But...that is way asking too much nowadays at the highest highland of Sabah, when the clouds are always ever present almost every night, waltzing among the peaks. At best a straggling wispy cottony drifter, thin enough to let the lights through.

Congratulations for this picture, good light management not to have over exposure on the palm tree.

Excellent capture of these star trails.
I love the colour of the sky, with all of the purple hues, and the inclusion of the palms below.
Really great effect :)
Thanks for sharing!

Excellent effect of the star trails with the purple and blue hues, and the mountain in silhouette and palm's illuminated in perfect sharpness. TFS
