picture the holidays: 10/twinkle twinkle

With a subject like 'twinkle twinkle', I could have taken another picture of my tree and called it a day.  But I've already taken plenty of pictures of my tree, so I wanted to do something different.

And then I had an ah-ha moment:

star trails.

My first attempt at shooting star trails, and I think it turned out pretty well.  215 25-second exposures stacked (but more on that later).

I had an extra string of lights that I played around with for awhile and then strung up on this tree off of our back porch.  I wanted to keep them in the frame to add to the Christmas-y theme of twinkle twinkle.

If you're interested in the how-to, check out my post here.
