Star trails over Colorado

A peaceful scene in Colorado, the week of the March equinox.

He wrote: “The last two hours of moonlight were enough to light the foreground and the diminishing winds allowed for some reflections. I’ve visited this place several times to shoot South. It turns out that North can be just as fun. The week of the equinox brought a calming and relaxing feeling. Aside from a few coyotes early in the evening, even the wildlife were quiet.” Thank you, Marc!
