All lit up and nowhere to go ... Communications Tower in Rancho Palos Verdes


5741 Crestridge Rd (Lat: 33.768333 Lon: -118.376667), Type: Tower, Structure height: 54 m
Update: Photo was taken Sunday evening, on a tripod, from Indian Peak Rd. which leads past the entrance to the mall parking lot. I think the little while dots/lines are stars...the exposure was for about 20 seconds.

What an interesting, dreamy, spacey thing!

I'm wondering what causes all those little white lines charging off at a diagonal?

You went techno on us with the provided information. It's a very beautiful combination of elements ground/line/light

Maybe it is signaling to the stars?

From the trails of the stars, it must be a very long exposure. The tower is still so clear, well done.

I have never tried something like this. Very good image for a huge exposure time. I'm going to try this if I can find my tripod...

Agree with Antjas! Looks like something alien has landed...

I like this one a lot! Don't think I've ever seen such a communication tower. As others have suggested, there is an "alien" appearance to it.

I agree re: the white dots.

Well done, Tash!
