Polaris By the Oak Tree
Photographed by Scott Davis on March 9, 2013
From Eastman Lake, California
This image was carefully composed to capture the beautiful shapes of the oak tree superimposed on the dramatic rotation of the stars around the celestial north pole. The image is a clear reminder that Polaris, while extremely close to north, is still not quite there.
