This was the first time I’ve ever tried photographing a meteor shower. On August 11th, the Perseid shower gave us quite a great show. Heather and the kids and I went out to Galena, IL with my parents. Everyone got to see meteors and I managed to capture a couple with the digital camera. I definitely learned a lot (like, don’t use such a high ISO next time) but more importantly, had a good time. The meteor in this photo is in the upper-left corner. I uploaded a larger-than-usual version because it’s difficult to see.
