Stars over Magaliesburg

Overview

One of my favourite places to take photographs is in the Magaliesburg Mountains. The following photographs were taken over a span of a couple of months, and I am always amazed at how well you can see the night sky so close to Johannesburg.

 

I took the following types of photographs:
·         Milky Way
·         Star Freeze; and
·         Star Trails
