My photo

Anything outdoors!  Tornadoes, eagles, blizzards, or auroras.  If it is in the sky, running through the woods or swimming in the water, I'm there!

A slow night for meteors

Up in Grand Rapids for the weekend and heading for Walker today. Spent a little time out on the freshly cut hayfield as the moon was setting to look for some Perseid meteors. Was pretty quiet as we only saw three. Played around with the moon right before it went behind the trees and ended up with this:

The odd thing about this picture is the is only about half visible to the eye but at a 30s f5.6 exposure, it filled in. The idea was to get the blanket of fog which was setting in anyhow.
