Polaris and the Pine Tree



I got a new flashlight this week. It has a handle like the BFG in Doom/Quake. When I squeeze the trigger things around it get warm quick.

Photo is a 13 minute exposure of the North Star and my neighbor's pine tree. I used the 2 million candlepower flashlight, an SB-600 flash with a homemade grid spot attached.

Thanks for explaining.I was wondering if that was a focus light, like the ones we use to light up the buildings!

It is a wonderment how the flashlight was able to light up a whole pine tree!!!

Is that tiny 'speck' in the sky the North star?

That is one of the best 'dusk photo' I have ever seen!

That's so amazing to the earth's rotation around the northern star in the trails that the stars left from the long exposure. Great shot!
