Nice shot Judi! I'm happy to see that you are getting out and about again and recovering from your fall.
The way you backlit parts of the rig and truck with flash, and painted the foreground for this make the shot for me. That takes a lot of skill and a dash of good fortune to get it just right. The WB is perfect in this too.
The Watson people should be very happy with this one.
The star trails somehow remind me about you being dizzy for a while after the accident.

The star are nice...and deserved to be above something more interesting than two trucks...
