Dru Dodd, from Warkworth, went out to photograph the possible aurora and decided upon Dunstanburgh as it’s one of the darkest points on the Northumberland coast.
Sadly the aurora didn’t materialise so he decided upon a star trail photograph instead.
This photograph depicts one hour in time. As the Earth rotates about its axis, the stars track across the sky. Polaris, our North Star, doesn’t move as this is the point of rotation.
The light on the castle was provided by the moon. It is actually 120 images all stacked on top of each other to provide a cleaner, better quality image. You can see more infomation about all his photographs by following him on facebook at facebook.com/DruDoddPhotography
