Milky Way Outshines the Meteor Shower

A few friends and I went out to shoot the Meteor shower. WE did see quite a few, but no super big ones.

HUMMM, looks much better on my Flicker site. Never understood why my shots always looks way worse when I upload them on 365?

Anyway you get the idea of what went on last night.

Hope everyone is having a good week!
Wow this is so beautiful!! Fav!! It was cloudy last night and tonight we have torrential rain - no meteor trails for me!!

Instant FAV!! I have wanted to take a photo of the stars forever, but just don't seem to get what I am supposed to do!! I'm not sure the Milky Way even shows up here in Georiga!! LOL I'm lucky to see the Big Dipper!! This is just stunning and I do see the beginning of a meteor in there!! Lovely dark colors and a million stars!!!

Thanks for the very nice comment and Fav on my photo and also the follow, will gladly follow back!!
I am finishing up my last year on Flickr. So sick of that place! Love the people but the site drives me nuts. I have 3 groups, one you should put this in called Everything Scenery!! I don't see any difference in the photos on here and Flickr, just that Flickr photos are larger!! Nice to meet you Nan!!

Milky Way photography is one of my favorite thisngs to shoot. I'm always so amazed how beautiful the night sky is!

@cashew Hi Kathy. The Milky Way is always out. It is however to see if you are in the city. I usually have to go out in the country to get away from the city lights. Even out there you can get light pollution which is that green glow behind the tree.

@catwhiskers We live out in the boon docks, but there are so many trees that we don't get a good view of the sky at all! Would have to go to flatter, higher ground!!! What lens did you use if you don't mind telling me?
August 15th, 2015  
@cashew I use the Rokinon 14 mm lens. I did a lot of research and that was the lens most recommended. Best part is it is a pretty inexpensive. I think I only paid 300 for it. It is a fully manual lens though, so you have to focus manually etc. But at night, you kind of have to do that anyway.

@catwhiskers that's okay :)
August 15th, 2015  
Pop pop pop !!! Nice one Nan!!!
