Brushstrokes of Light

From the photographer: "The first thing we see in this picture are the trails and points of light, created by thousands of fireflies, that light up in the night. Also we see some startrails and the moving clouds, looking like brushstrokes, painted by the light of the rising moon. The image intends to show the importance of dark skies for the fireflies, especially in the mating season, because light pollution interferes with their ability to see each others flashes.
Technical details: Stack of about 65 pictures taken on a Canon 6D + Rokinon 14mm f2.8; each exposure 25s at f2.8 ISO3200"
