The World is Spinning

Took this long exposure of star trails with my Sony A7 riii, this was my first successful attempt at star trails. I had to get far enough from the city that car lights didn't interrupt after hours of exposure. Joshua Tree National Park was the perfect place for me to experiment with this technique. Lots of little critters came and went while I took this photo and got to watch some night rock climbers behind me. Joshua Tree is a magical place everyone should visit.
