Meteor Showers

Every evening I stare up at the sky on my drive home from work hoping to catch a clear evening with no cloud, fog or whatever else is trying to ruin whats above. Last weekend we were lucky enough to be able to see a meteor shower in the UK. It was clear, with minimal cloud and around 11pm my buddy Lawrence  gave me the heads up to get out and shoot. And that what I did with Alice

One of my first attempts, testing exposure length and ISO. Shot at F4, ISO 640, 30 Seconds.

I have been closely following a brilliant website recently for shooting the sky. Lonely Speck is my bible and from this I have been slowly progressing with nightscapes. I have used their presets to edit my photos as editing the night sky is probably one of the hardest edit jobs I have attempted.

Overall I shot about 50 photos of the sky but this probably has to be my favourite, the perfect levels of exposure especially with restrictions of only having a F4 lens.

Usually cloud during the night ruins my images but I feel this one adds something.
