Stars circle around the North Celestial Pole (near star Polaris) as captured in this single film exposure from the historic caravansary of Qusheh near the city of Damghan, Iran. This desert caravansary was built on the Silk Road, right outside the wall of an ancient city known as Qumis which is now buried under the desert.
