Eureka Prize: Star trail over Lightning Ridge

For promotion of New Scientist Eureka Prize for Science Photography only.

Looking due south showing the movement of the earth over 50 minutes. A joining of 100 images, each exposure 30 seconds shows the star trail. The red church (an old movie set in Lightning Ridge NSW) is lit by a 30 sec' exposure of the brake lights of my car. Internal light is by torch light.
