Title Exposure date Category
Fragment from the unique rock formation "The Petrified Wedding" located near Kurdjali, Eastern Rhodope Mountain, Bulgaria. These are the groom and the bride in profile. Read more under my next image from the same place, exposed a couple of hours later - The Petrified Wedding. A single 45-minutes exposure started about two hours after sunset. The star trails resulted from the spinning of the Earth. The foreground is moonlit. The light pollution on the left-hand side originates from the town of Kurdjali.
