Star trails over rice terraces in China. Hour-long time-exposure image of stars around the northern celestial pole. The star trails are created by the Earth's rotation on its axis. Photographed at Honghe Hani Rice Terraces in Yunnan, south-western China. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, these terraces are on the slopes of the Ailao mountains and have been created over the past 1300 years by the Hani people. Photographed on 3 March 2014.
