You can’t fail to be struck by this im­age of star trails above the desert in Utah. The bold­ness of the trails is really eye-catching, and they ap­pear to light up the whole land­scape. Marek picked the per­fect point on which to cen­tre his star trails – the very peak of the rocks. The re­sult­ing com­pos­ite of 320 im­ages is a study of the con­trast be­tween the reg­u­lar, smooth star trails in a cool-coloured sky, and the ir­reg­u­lar, warm coloured rocks be­low, both el­e­ments care­fully bal­anced to pre­vent ei­ther one from tak­ing over the pic­ture. Star trail im­ages don’t come much bet­ter.
