Trucks at night, long exposure

Last night my friends at WNC Paving were working on a road in Haywood County,  North Carolina which gave me a good opportunity to do some night photography. This picture was a fifteen second exposure, 17mm, ISO-500, f/11. I fired a flash when the dump truck that I wanted to freeze was in front of the camera.

Star trails circling the North Star in the night sky.

198 30 second second exposures stacked using StarStax (a free program). The diagonal dotted line is an airplane. The slight gap in the trails occurred when the battery died and I had to change it.
