The Milky Way During the Perseids Meteor Showers

I have always wanted to take photos of the Milky Way during the Perseids Meteor Showers and with the help of my son Matt, of Matthew Crowley Photography to Flickr members, I can finally say I did.

This photo was taken with a Canon 50D with a 10-20 Ultra wide angle zoom lens on a tripod for 30 seconds at F/S 3.5 with an ISO 3200. It was a breathtaking scene as we stood in the dark and looked at the amazing Milky Way with shooting stars everywhere. I was lucky enough to catch 3 shooting stars in the photo. We spent over an hour watching this amazing sight and I will remember it always.
