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 and airplanes

Star trails looking north from last night. The dotted lines crossing the trails are from airplanes. Nikon 28-70mm @ 28mm, ISO-200, f/2.8, 300 30 sec. exposures stacked.
