      Hi Suzanne,
      I queried Paul and here's how he got this photo:
      Paul wrote,
      "Here is how the photo was created.
      The photo was taken at night.
      I pointed my camera towards the North Star in order to get a circular star trails in the sky.
      I took 40 exposures that were two minutes long for a total of 80 minutes.
      On the first exposure I lit the tree up with a flash light, a technique called Light Painting.
      Then in Photoshop I stacked all 40 photo together to create the “Star Trails”."
