Am going to blame the meat eating crocs on this one. Same as I blame the protect our economy at all costs America(and its profit hungry multinational corporations) on the endless invasions.

Yosemite Falls Moonbow & Star Trails
This was taken sometime ago in Yosemite National Park on a lonely night with only wild raccoons to keep me awake. Scurrying noises in the dark tend to keep you on edge. Given that there was no room for anyone to pass me on the trail even the presence of a raccoon was unnerving as noises unleash one's imagination about what could be in the dark. What really was happening in the dark though was this amazing sight of a moonbow illuminated by moonlight. Human night vision doesn't allow one to see color that well so this only appeared vividly on my camera.

+Mark Pearson +Chris Dellis While doing star trails, sometimes the photographer will expose small segments at a time as too long of an exposure will over expose the shot and also introduce noise into the image. The different exposures are combined in photoshop later, however the original exposure time for 1 exposure is retained in the EXIF data.
