Praia da Ursa by TobiasRichter Praia da Ursa by TobiasRichter
A long exposure shows the earth’s rotation in form of paths traced by the stars, except for the polar star that remains at its position because of its alignment with the earth’s axis of rotation. This photo was taken on a clear new moon night at the Praia da Ursa. The beach is located at the western tip of Europe and is permanently exposed to the ocean’s forces, reason for the constantly changing rock formations.

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-05-11
Suggester said; "This is probably the best star-trail long exposure I've seen, and easily one of the best landscape photographs in general. The gradient in the sky, the shape of the rocks, the perfect lighting of the foreground, are all integral to the mythical feeling of this photograph. It's like the photographer went back in time and photographed the beginning of a magic spell, or the creation of an interdimensional portal!"

This makes that spire of rock appear to be responsible for opening some kind of hyperspace wormhole. Very cool!

Brilliant--and very patient--shot of the circumpolar star trails!
