Star Trails Over Hogback

Today’s post comes from the Hogback Covered Bridge of Madison County, Iowa. After capturing images of the Milky Way and several Orionid meteors over the bridge, I moved position to be able to shoot the star trails over the bridge. Capturing 6 individual images, I later processed them together in Photoshop, resulting in this star trails image:
