Red Planet Star Trails

Red Planet Star Trails

This was taken from the side of the Caldera Colorada volcano, near Masdache, Lanzarote. There is a 45 minute walk round the base of the cone. One side is an unusual rich red, made up from cinder, rich in iron oxide.

The tripod was locked in place and after the landscape was taken with a little light the stars were taken an hour later with 2 minute exposures over 1 hour and 34 minutes.
