Spectacular Star Trails by Lincoln Harrison

Australian photographer Lincoln Harrison's Startrails series never ceases to amaze us. We first introduced Harrison's eye-catching photos last year and he has spent the last 13 months expanding his collection of colorful swirls in the night sky. We couldn't pass up the chance to share more of the spiraling and radiant paths of stars captured in Harrison's long exposure photography.

It's hard to believe that such stunningly captivating photography was produced by a man who bought his first camera just a little over two years ago. The photographer originally intended to use his Nikon D3100 for taking pictures of items he was planning to sell on eBay, but found he had far more interesting subjects to capture. Within a week of his initial purchase, the photographer had become a bona fide photo enthusiast, having accumulated eight lenses for his camera.

From that moment on, Harrison has earned himself the daunting title of diligent photographer, spending up to 15 hours in tumultuous wintery conditions to get the perfect shot of a naturally luminous and active starry night. Harrison documents the natural fireworks in the night sky, aided by the earth's rotation and time, that are invisible to the naked eye.
