Daytime star trails

Stars trailing in the setting sun. The foreground photo was taken about 10 minutes after sunset, to give light to the houses and trees, but not the harsh daytime sun light.  The stars were taken starting about 30 minutes after sunset. This is a 33 minute representation of the Earth's rotation. I forgot how many photos I took, but each photo was about 10 seconds long, ISO 800, and f/5.6 (I think).
