Orion Sets For The Last Time In 2011

This was composited from 244 30-second exposures, f/4 ISO1600 taken between 10PM and midnight.  Occasional traffic painted the trees with interesting light.  At the center of the frame you can see the three, equally spaced bright stars that form Orion’s belt, and the light smear below made by his sword, (I’ve included a visual aid below…)  Composite images like this are only possible because of Startrails software by Achim Schaller – THANKS Achim!
