My first attempt at star trails

Star trails are where you attempt to capture the rotation of the Earth by leaving the shutter open for a long time, so the light from stars appears as a streak as the Earth rotates.  This image was made at my campsite by the Colorado river near Moab.  I left the shutter open for a full hour.
