This incredible picture, and many others like it, were taken by amateur photographer Lincoln Harrison. Harrision, 37, spent about 15 hours taking pictures in the Australian outback. He was able to capture these incredible spirals because of the earth’s rotation, which makes it look as if the stars are flying across the horizon.
The location is in Lake Eppalock, in the southern state of Victoria. As he explained his new passion, “I wasn’t planning on getting into it as a hobby, but a week later I had about eight lenses and all the other goodies. I couldn’t wait to get started. I’ve been shooting at least two or three times a week ever since, mainly landscapes, and star trails when the conditions are right, I’m lucky enough to live not too far from the outback. With no buildings for miles, the sky is so clear and it’s amazing to be able to capture the beauty of the night’s sky on camera.”
