My friend Herbert Law of Minute Sixteen is in town, and invariably, we have insanely mis-matched schedules. The other night he invited me out to join him and a couple others to photograph the Perseid Meteor Shower which came “flying through” (haha) this month. And while I had such great intentions to connect before the night was through, it turned out that another dear friend, Stacy LaMascus was going to leave town for a year at school… In this case, the mini going-away party trumped the meteor outing… But as we hung out and the ladies took a dip in the hot tub, I put my gear to use in the back yard to capture a few starlight photos.
Take a look.
The first image here has a shooting star. I also like the framing of the house and surrounding trees. It feels like we’ve got a portal to another world!
This one is (I believe) a satellite moving through the night sky. The milky way really stands out in here.
I noticed that the yard, lit by a light from inside the garage, had some interesting features contrasted against the starry sky. Fun!
