Star Trail Test Shot

Saturday night the weather was perfect for a long exposure of the stars. My camera normally uses shutter speeds between 30 secs and 1/4000 secs, but for this picture I used the bulb function for the first time and exposed it for just over 7 minutes. This blurred the stars as the Earth rotates. Next time I've got to find something more interesting for the foreground rather than houses!
