Star Trails in the Rockies

This image was shot on a full moon night which is surprisingly bright enough, and hence the foreground looks as if it has been shot during the day. There was almost no wind and the water was almost completely still, giving fairly clean reflections. The wind picked up rapidly almost as soon as I was done shooting. This is a stack of multiple images, and the star trails are caused due to the rotation of the earth. A similar image can also be produced using very long exposures, but the resulting images can have a lot of noise, hence I used the stacking method.
