Comments(7)- August 14, 2007

The night before last, when everyone was sound asleep in their beds I was in a park staring at the sky. The Perseids meteor shower started at about 2am here in Toronto and probably went the whole night. I saw a whole bunch of meteors fly through the sky, at a rate of 60 meteors per hour, but only caught one on camera. This one was extra special, even after it flew by it's trail was still visible for a second or so. It was really hard to shoot the sky and I'm lucky I captured this photo. There's a lot of light pollution in the city and a 5 minute exposure resulted in the sky being red and very light. The first photo was desaturated and I edited he levels to darken the sky.

  • Wow, not something you see everyday. Impressive that you were able to capture it this well. The two photos look really different even though they were taken on the same night. The white streaks are neat through the sky although they just look like lines on a chalk board. I hope you made a good wish on a shooting star, it was a special night, something tells me it will come true ;)
