“Waterfall Park Stairs” by Joe Clark. 

Photograph captured in Petoskey, Mi on 8/7/2016. 

Composite of two images both 30 seconds at F./4 ISO 400. 

I was photographing the Petoskey waterfront one night when I was working on capturing the stairs with the dark sky above. By coincidence as I started one of my exposures two teenagers started walking down the stairs, one with a headlamp on. As the first exposure ended I immediately began another, luckily the headlamp was behind one of the structural parts of the staircase when this happened. I was able to capture the complete light trail from the top to the bottom of the stairs.
