wow! looks like china! :-) how did you manage to shoot this?

It was relatively easy. Put your camera on a tripod, set exposure time to ~8 seconds (or whatever you want, but 8 seconds are a good time), set continuous mode, plug your remote control and lock it. The camera will shot one photo after another with an exposure time of 8 seconds.

You will get lots of photos, but maybe you have luck and get one.

Thank you for that tip. I'll try it on Saturday, if the weather forecast is correct. ;^)

Looks like someone broke a piece out of the sky, and tried to glue it back, but not quite right!!

A stunning shot.
