Me and the Russians watch for Perseids

That little streak in the left side of the picture to the right of the clouds is one of two Perseids I saw and the only one I captured. I brightened it slightly in Photoshop otherwise it looked like a ..well .. it is a little white line among the stars.


The people behind me were a Russian family who oooed and awed with each little streak. I was mostly inside my Mazda watching shows and killing mosquitos.


This is a 30 second exposure at ISO 400 and f/5.6 on my Sigma 10-20mm. It was taken on the road to Iona Beach park, just outside YVR (Vancouver International).


I used a noise reduction (dark) frame as well.
