Default light painting/star trails

I drove out last night in search of this old church built in the late 1800's just west of Calgary and got home at 2am.

The camera was set up on a tripod with the 20 second shutter locked on burst mode. As it shot away, I walked over and light painted the fence and building then sat in the vehicle until the card filled up and the camera stopped taking pictures.

5d Mark II, ISO 3200, 165 images @ 20 seconds then stacked in PS, 24 - 70mm @ 2.8

Hawgwild, this is a fun process to discover as night photography has it's own challenges to overcome.
Thank you Hawgwild, interested_observer and Tallgrass for commenting.

Here is one image taken from another angle.

spy, all 3 are wonderful.

the star trail shot is unique and interesting.

but i am really loving the single shot version myself. you get the subtle color variations of the sky and foggy trails of the milky way. and just a great job of lighting up that church.

the 3rd shot i am digging too. wonderfully composed, and this processing technique works well this shot too.

inspiring work again.
