Sunday evening David England and I went up Dead Indian Road out of Ashland to photograph the Perseids Meteor shower. Since we went straight up from a church priesthood meeting I was still in my church clothes and with out a jacket. Fortunately, David’s son Nathan had a jacket I could borrow so I didn’t freeze.
This photograph I obtained as someone was backing out their car and the brake lights were painting the trees a brilliant red. I took several pictures over the evening with the trees highlighted this way.
I didn’t think I had to many shots with meteors in them until I got home and was going through the photos in lightroom.
I love this shot of the milky way showing the colors.
This was a fun evening to lay out under the stars and take photographs of the night sky. What made taking photographs over and over of the same section of sky hoping to capture a meteor was the interval photography ability. I just set it up to take 50 20 sec exposure shots every 30 seconds. This way I could just sit back and relax while the camera did the work!
Here is the rest of the shots enjoy and feel free to comment below on your own meteor photography adventures.
