lost in the dream, or just the silence of a moment, it's always hard to tell
i took two fully charged batteries with me on my four day trek in andringitra hoping they would hold out long enough for me to capture all that i wanted. i still had some juice left on the final night so i walked to the edge of the campsite and set up my camera. i pointed it in a vaguely southernly direction, and set the timelapse function to take a 30 second exposure every minute. as the shutter began clicking my friend and i stared up at the ocean of lights as they twinkled and shot across the sky while the sound of tribal drums rolled in from the distance. it felt as special as it sounds. i managed to capture 50 shots before the battery finally gave in, and i decided to process them a little different to my previous startrails. as well as blending them together to create the moving lines, i also gave priority to the first capture which highlighted those individual stars as well as the milky way we witnessed moving across the sky. as with any star trail photo, this isn't an accurate account of what i saw at the time, but i think it's a better representation of how i felt.

here's the first photo of the sequence
