Freney Mont Blanc by RobertoBertero Freney Mont Blanc by RobertoBertero
Click here to buy a print of this photo

Star trail single exposure of 25 minutes.
This is the otherworldly area below the Freney, southwest face of Mont Blanc massif.

From left to right: Mont Blanc, Aiguille Croux, Aiguille Blanche, Aiguille Noire, Mont Rouge de Peuterey.
Above: Polaris
Lighting from East: rising Moon

Due to the long exposure, the camera captured also a sort of light coming from the West... honestly I do not know where it came from, perhaps from France, or perhaps it might be light reflected by the high glaciers of the massif.
In any case it's offering some sort of aesthetic contribution :-)

I think the "light coming from the west" are thin high clouds which you may have not noticed under the otherwise dark starry sky. I have a lot of night sky shots (not here) that show them also, only visible on long exposures as they slowly move on - thus they are also blurred.

25 minutes?? I see photos with 5/6 minutes with longer trails... do you think they made post-production?

I don't know what other photographers are doing, but 5/6 minutes for a star trail is just... nothing (!!!)
if you see longer lines with such a short exposure exists also the possibility that has been used a telephoto lens
