SPELLBINDING ENGLISH STAR TRAILS

A photographer has captured spellbinding images of stars swirling above the English countryside. Freelance photographer Matt Bigwood wanted to convey the movement of stars when he photographed the night sky over Gloucestershire. Using long exposures, Matt shot the same location multiple times, before layering the images on top of each other to create the star trails in the sky. The 46-year-old, of Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, says: “My aim is just to produce eye-catching pictures that convey maybe an hour or more movement into one image.
