Somerset: Meteor at Midnight, Glastonbury Tor.
*Please also view on black background (click photograph)*
The night of 12th August was to be the peak activity for this year's Persied meteor shower, so a trip to Glastonbury Tor was planned; the perfect setting for a meteor photography session.
After several hundred shots, and with a bit of luck, the heavens granted me one decent photograph, taken almost exactly at midnight.
After initial set-up with a north-easterly view, some test shots were made to obtain the correct exposure for the scene. The camera was then set to continuous shooting mode and the remote shutter release button was locked down so that the camera was photographing non-stop.
Canon EOS 5D MkII with Carl Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 Planar T lens. 8 seconds at F/1.4 and ISO 1000.
