An otherworldly image, a perfect combination of professionalism and luck. My computer monitor and I have established a very deep bond thanks to these kind of photos taken by you and the likes of you. Well played sir, well played.
Thanks for sharing. I like the photo but the experience of being out on the beach that night was the real treasure. There were amazing meteors shooting all over and I didn't dare hope to capture one with the camera, especially with a 24mm lens. If you look close, there is a second, more faint, meteor that intersects the larger one. I double checked the frames on either side of this and they show that it wasn't a satellite or airplane. Thanks again - Craig.
@Craig Goodwin I thought so - and at a perfect 90 degrees! Yes, a great photo captures what you see, but nothing can really capture the feeling of being in that moment.
What a feast for the senses! Celestial lights and silhouettes against a perfect balance of pastel sky and reflection. Craig, I think I might have danced a little when I saw it.
