Whaaaaa this is crazy! How much research did you need to make this happen?

Thanks. Yes, even I was thinking same that 30 min exposure is crazy. Got lot of hot pixels on sensor. Little research is needed for location,timing and weather. Surely you can't do mistake with exposure triangle calculations otherwise you have to wait for next full moon.

Very creative shot. I can say I have never seen something like this before. I love the complementary colors.

This is incredible, great work! I can imagine you had a MASSIVE amount of hot pixels on this shot. How'd you clean it up?

Thank you so much for the response! This really is an incredible shot.

I am amazed. The luminous trajectory is sensational. Where I live there is no low horizon (well, not nextdoor...). Very inspiring.
