Explanation: A single, long exposure captured these star trails above a remarkably colorful sea of clouds. As seen from Medvednica mountain, the surrounding peaks and lights illuminating the clouds from below are north of Zagreb, Croatia. Near the center of the also colorful star trail arcs, the North Celestial Pole is off the upper right edge of the frame. Even though this is the age of the digital camera, the well composed skyscape was recorded using color slide film in a medium format camera. The dreamlike scene's starry sky and ephemeral ocean could be reminiscent of an older age still, when the Pannonian Sea covered this part of central Europe some 10 million years ago.

I just bought a new Digital camera, and I HATE it. I hope the store will take a return.
How I love my Pentax K1000, but WHERE can one buy FILM?????
Thank You, Dear FRiend! :-)
Thanks! Seems like a good topic of its own, for that matter. One of the disks I got out of the public library a week or so ago is the show about Pluto’s planethood, the Tyson one, pretty amusing, the extra footage pissed me off though. :’)

Okay. That’s just magical and gorgeous. That has to be a once in a generation confluence of clouds and the lovely light on them.
Currently the spaceship is still about 10 times as far from Pluto as the earth is from the sun.
