Leo Rising Over Trees, November 2002
After the spectacular Leonid shower of 2001, during which my attempts to capture the show with a camera were a near-total washout, I was out looking at the sky one year later equipped with an old Yashica body loaded with 4x faster film and equipped with a plain-vanilla 28-mm lens.
The faster film didn`t help (I should have sent the cassette to a be developed by a lab that understands what "push processing" means), but I did get a curiously interesting photo, taken in the middle of the night under enough moonlight to make it possible, counting aloud to "30 Mississippis" to get a time exposure.
The view is toward the east. You can see the head of the constellation Leo in the middle of the image.
