Mount Taranaki: Star Trails over the Summit

Mount Taranaki: Star Trails over the Summit

I started to take star trails around 4:00am from Maketawa Hut on 1 July 2015. This image was a result of combining 15 of 4-minute shots together to achieve 60 minutes long exposure effect.

This is also a vertical panorama image, showing some details of the lower part of the mountain. The shining cloud over the summit was due to the setting moon just behind the peak during the long exposure.
