Painted by nature, and a fishing boat! Spend some moments to read this and explore the various elements in this unusual “real” photograph, a time-exposure full-circle fisheye image of northern lights and star trails above the Atlantic Ocean, photographed on the western coast of Iceland. A passing fishing boat created the trail on the ocean. A meteor and a satellite are also captured in the shot. Star trails, created by the Earth rotation during the half-hour exposure, appear around the north celestial pole, marked by the north star Polaris which stand near overhead in this far north 65 degrees latitude. ⁣
