Photographer's Note

I took this photo at around 1am this morning (21st Dec 2009)
It was cold and clear when i set the camera up to capture these star trails, infact i had already had a star trail session a couple of miles up the road about 2 hours before, but i wasn't dressed for the temperature of -4.8'c which greeted me when i first got out the car, so i changed locations and it was much less cold here at around 0'c.
I decided to compose the shot with the boats in the foreground, just to add a bit of interest. I hope the North star being central doesn't put any of you off this photo!
I used multiple 30 second exposures to capture the star trails.
