Circles Over the Remarkables

After four days of walking the Milford Track, i was looking forward to a night in my Queenstown hotel; not that I needed it, but I was looking forward to it. Another cloudless night begged me to go out shooting, but I decided to place my camera and tripod on my hotel room balcony and have it shoot continuously. While I slept inside the warmth of the room, the camera did its thing. I framed the shot with no regard to the stars, just taking into account the trees in the bottom of the frame. You can imagine my surprise when I saw that the center axis of the rotating stars was almost perfectly in the middle of the frame. The streetlights provided illumination for the tree tops, and the green buoy burned through the night.
