Meteor streaks through the Milky Way. Of course that isn’t really the case but it sure looks like it. I tried my hand at some astrophotography this past weekend – only the second time ever for me.
The first night totally bombed as I struggled to get things right. The second night however I finally had some success.
In the case of this image, I was lucky enough to capture a meteor as it entered the Earth’s atmosphere with the Milky Way in the background.
I was also experimenting with ‘light painting’ by shining a flashlight on the trees in the foreground. That part of the image I am not so sure I like; I think I would prefer them as just shadows. What do you think?
