    The second image with the circles is a long exposure… set the camera up on a tripod and leave the shutter open for an hour or 2 and the result are these star trails in the sky.

    Hello, how does one go about getting their blog featured in a promotion like this? Thank you so much! I also have this one which I need to get more active on I got all hung up when I was getting glitches from deleting duplicate photos. I submitted questions and never heard back. A friend took a class on web page creation through wordpress and she was unable to assist me either. Thank you so much!Maureen Keefe

      I recommend posting questions in the support forums when you experience glitches or technical issues — that’s a good place you can get answers from a mix of people (staff and volunteers).
