    This image captures about an hour of firefly activity, and the movement of the stars from the road in front of my home in rural Ontario. I like the random pattern of the firefly flashes in contrast with the precision of the star trails. The time frame of this image would be centered on the midnight hour at the start of summer.

    Image time: 12AM. An hour of time was spent creating this beautiful juxtaposition of fireflies and star trails in the northern night sky. The result is an image worth getting lost in.
