Night posing with the sky and a 10 second timer

I've always wanted to do some nighttime sky poses with me busting some antics against a beautiful "backlit canopy with holes punched in it" (Incubus). But since nobody wants to come stargazing with me, and my shutter lock was tied up making star trails, I had to use the 10 second timer on my point and shoot.

Here's me deep in thought looking at the stars, or maybe watching planes land at the Wood County Regional Airport, or just being deep and reflective in general. This is obviously just a dramatic pose. In reality, I had the camera propped up on a rock and had to bolt over to the bench just in time to fake a relaxing posture for the photo. Still fun though!

I tried to get my buddy Orion in the shot with me on this one, but it's hard without a tripod and only 10 seconds to clamber up the hill. When I got up there I had about 1 second to strike a pose, and the first thing that came to mind is that huge Jesus statue overlooking Rio - so here's my Rio Jesus pose!

Here's my not-so-successful attempt at holding the moon up over my head. I think something like this is going to require a second photographer to pull off. Oh well, you get the idea!
