    I reckon "stellar work" would be redundant?

    great. but I want to know how do you do this? I can't believe that you stand still for 30 sec or so?

    that's exactly what it did. i set up the camera on the ground and locked the shutter release so the camera took an image every 30 seconds with a 30 second exposure then climbed to the roof of my truck and stood there as still as i could be until i hear the shutter go off and then go off again, i took a bunch of different poses but i thought this one turned out the best.

    if you look closely you can see my hands are completely blurred out. its really hard to stay completely still especially with your arms outstretched like that

    Awesome. It conveys that mysterious time and space feel. If I could take a self portrait of that quality, I would have a profile pic.
