This morning at St. Anne’s Church, Shandon, Cork city.
By Stiofan O’Rian.
But HOW on earth did he DO that?
Pick a spot, find the north star (it’s no closer on the northside, unfortunately), aim the camera in that direction. Take 150 photos over an hour while trying to keep warm, passing the time by talking to drunk people walking by and overhearing arguments with taxi drivers. Then go home and stack all of the photos on top of each other so that the trail of stars can be seen. The only editing is in lining all the dots alongside each other – the rotation of the earth does the rest.
