Night photography: Star catching device silhouette

A 20-minute dark sky exposure while waiting for the moonrise at Paul’s Junkyard in the Mojave. Without moonlight in the sky, the star trails really pop. Here’s another long exposure night photo of the same truck in full moonlight. The documentary approach in the other version is more typical of my style. Interesting to compare the two images.

  1. hi Joe,

    It’s always interesting to see main subject in silhouette, I have actually made one previously.

    Sometimes the shape/form is enough to tell the story, while the other time it raises curiosity and people might spend more time looking at the image and puzzle themselves.
