Star trails over Mount Shuksan in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, photographed in January 2013. The foreground light in this photograph came entirely from the stars (and Jupiter, the brightest streak in the top-right of the image).
Because the camera was pointed at approximately 90 degrees from Polaris, the stars in the centre of the image appear to streak in a straight line, with those above and below curving up and down. Also, the Milky Way has been captured in this photo, clearly visible as a brighter vertical stripe just to the left of the middle of the photo.
