Milky Way Trails above Hatu

Hatu, Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, Indian Himalayas

From the photographer: "Twinkle, Twinkle, so many stars... At Hatu, in the Himalayas, I clicked a 3-hour (60 x 180 seconds) polar star trail photo using an 8mm fish eye lens and a Canon 450D. The camera captured stars right till the horizon and the village lights in the valley below. The subs frames were combined into a trail using Images Plus software, and then I did something special; I blended in a single photo from the middle of the trail showing the Cassiopeia Milky Way over the 'Dhruv Tara' (Pole Star in Hindi)" - Ajay Talwar
