I have had an interest in astronomy for quite a while. These pictures are all of the night sky, stars, moon; they include landscapes or local towns. The star trails in the photos occur because of the earth's rotation. If you look over a few hours time the stars will be in a different location in the sky. Also, I am interested in the contrast of the perfect beautiful sky, like a possibility of eternity with its light that has taken millions of years to get here and the messier, imperfect, more transitory world underneath.
