Yet another image of the magnificent Kurdjali dam. I tried a different compositional approach to this iconic place. What I find particularly interesting are the two bright star trails in the left hand-side. They are both equally bright, very close to each other but with different colors. Check out the other starscape of the same place - The Curve Moonlit. And the solargraph from exactly the same point of view - Kurdjali Dam Solargraph This is a manual blend of two exposures. One shot in early twilight to capture the last light from the setting sun and to preserve details in the middle-ground. The second one is a 1 hour and 10 minutes exposure for star trails started about 2 hours after sunset. The night was moonless.
