[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On my last night in Poland i stopped at the Pieniny Mountains and visited the Three Crowns (Trzy Korony) massif - a superb region in the southern part of the country. Since the weather didn't cooperate at sunset, i returned to the cabin i was accommodated at and attempted a star-trail shot over the towering peaks. This is was resulted an hour later.

Hope you'll like it and thanks for visiting.

Hello Horia !
What strange phenomenon !And how lucky you are to shooted it.
A super pic showing us this phenomenon. TFS
Have a nice w-end,

Hi Horia,
How nice to have a cabin with such a stunning view. The extreem long exposure with a perfect result on the star trails is awesome. You positioned the pole star perfectly and even got good details on the mountain. Certainly a photo I would have loved to make myself.
