Notes

5 1/2 hour exposure using PENTAX LX (film) camera. Composed the image prior to the sun setting and began exposing the film after all the star were out, closed down the shutter as the moon started to rise - that is how I got the light on the rock formation.

Description

Star tracks over the Temple of the Sun. The varied colors in the star tracks show the different temp that the stars are burning. The 'noodle' over the right tip of the rock formation is the north star.
