Sierra Star Trails
After first seeing the developed image - I was hopeful that I'd captured an aurora in this approxmately 1.5 hour exposure. But the more research I did, the more it seems that the green sky is due to reciprocity failure in this particular film. Although I still like the image - an aurora would have been perfect!
