Starry Starry Sunrise?

Back in Cornwall, this shot was taken on the rocks at Trebarwith Strand at first light.  The exposure time was 10 minutes at f/11, ISO-100.  The star trails distinctly show the rotation around the pole star and gives some notion to the fact that we’re hurtling through space at an incredible rate.  It’s all quite mind-blowing to me, trying to get a sense of the scale of the universe in which we live, how it all works and where we fit into it all…

Certainly makes you think doesn’t it..? ;-)
