Night Photography is both interesting and challenging. Soon after I got home from the trip out west a good friend and I went out to try to capture the 4th of July fireworks.It was a good thing we went to the local ones on the 3rd because the ones on the 4th were rained out.
We’ve found a “local” spot that except for a large power plant is relatively dark, making for some nice night images. This one includes a storm over the Gulf and the Milky Way in all its glory. Sure makes the storm look insignificant.
We couldn’t pass up the chance to try to capture some meteors during the recent Perseids meteor shower. After 4 late nights and many hours we did get a few but I suspect viewing was much better further north in the States. Star trails are a new adventure for me and this one includes 2 meteors.
