Another failed attempt

Well I went out yesterday evening hoping to catch a meteor on camera. The Draconid meteor shower isn't as spectacular as the Perseid shower but none the less I thought I would give it a shot. So, after sitting for a hour and seeing 10-15 of them, sure that I had captured at least one, the buffer on my camera filled up. After looking at all of the images, I didn't even get one. I was also hoping to make another short video clip with all of the images, but a couple of passing by trucks messed that up. I didn't walk away empty handed. The first image is where I set up to try and capture the meteors. The second and third images I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the barns silhouette while driving home. I used a very bright surefire flashlight to "paint" the barn into the picture. These were all shot using a Sigma 10-20 lens at f/4, 30 second exposures ISO 2000.

  1. To bad you did not catch a meteor as planned. But the night shots you did catch are excellent. Your milky way and painted barn shots are creative as well as interesting. Way to go!!
