Daytime Stars … Nighttime Stars

Today’s post comes from the Holliwell Covered Bridge of Madison County, Iowa. During the morning sunrise, I captured this “starburst” as the sun rose from behind the covered bridge:

Sunrise at the Holliwell Covered Bridge

That evening, I returned to the Holliwell bridge to shoot the night skies over the bridge. Capturing 5 individual images, I later processed them together in Photoshop, resulting in this star trails image:
