Star trails near Darling

Star trails of a rock formation on a hill close to Darling. 

Star trails take up alot of time. You have to take it closer to midnight when there's preferably no light - no sun, no moon. And while we were spending our time on some farmer's property, we almost got caught and chased off the farm. What helped us is that the workers weren't too sure what they were dealing with and kept a safe distance. Could have been aliens as there were only 3 red LED's from the camera and timer flickering in the distance. :-)
The light in the background is from Cape Town, even though it's 60-70km away.
