Star trails near Telouet -This is a technically superb shot. The exposure has to be about two hours, the direction due south and all the focus done manually. The lighting is also right on the money. My only criticism is that it could have done with a little more definition in the foreground but when one is blundering around at night setting up a tripod with other things to think about that is not easy. It is comfortably this month's best shot and shows that just because the sun has gone down, the cameras do not have to be put away.
