That campfire definitely did a wondrous work in painting the rock in the most beautiful warm tones! And you made a superb work in capturing the whole scene and the trails!

If I may ask, why does a longer exposure give streaks of light like that? It's a really cool effect. :)

the earth is constantly spinning on its axis, making stars appear to move in the sky (ever so slowly) relative to an earth-bound observer. A long exposure captures this apparent movement.

Excellent shot Ian! Really eye catching trails with a great foreground. Nice red light on the rocks, really makes it other worldly!
