When the #FriFotos theme for this week was announced over on Twitter, I got seriously excited. I mean, this is Starry-Eyed Travels, and the theme is STARS. Couldn’t be more perfect, really.

Except, as I flicked through my photos, from all my trips, I realised I didn’t really have any of stars.

I love photos of the cosmos, but they are tricky to take, requiring a long exposure, and it’s something I have not mastered yet. So, this week’s image is a somewhat creative interpretation on the theme.

I loved watching these boys play football with an old plastic bottle, running between light and shadow – and the lights of the houses on the mountainside above twinkled like stars.

Now, please excuse me, I have to go and learn how to take long-exposure night pictures!

    You know what, first look at the pictures tells me those are stars! Only when I read the whole post did I realise that those are lights in the mountain. Lol.

    Long exposure photography is very tricky and takes a lot of time to master. Let me know how it goes! Oh and a little tip a want to share with you. Check out they share techniques on the long exposure shots!

      Thank you so much for your kind comment! No, sadly not! They were just lights from the houses on the hillside. It was a magical sight though!
