Dreamlike scene’s starry sky in Croatia

The lights of the city transformed into mysterious lights under the mist. When because of the rotation of the Earth  the stars pulled  beautiful arcs over the sky.

By Boris Stromar

A single, long exposure captured these star trails above a remarkably colorful sea of clouds. As seen from Medvednica mountain, the surrounding peaks and lights illuminating the clouds from below are north of Zagreb, Croatia. Near the center of the also colorful star trail arcs, the North Celestial Pole is off the upper right edge of the frame.  The spectacular scene’s starry sky and ephemeral ocean could be reminiscent of an older age still, when the Pannonian Sea covered this part of central Europe some 10 million years ago.
