You DID catch some of the Lytid (?) meteor shower. Well done. It was raining and well overcast down at the bottom of our green hole in the trees here Ken
Why do you have a replica Stonehenge in WA?
Most impressive location for this set however. Well done.
Thanks Jethro, I believe they are called the Lryid's. This was the only of the series where I caught one, and it was as the rising sun was starting to lighten the sky. I did manage to get some decent Milky Way shots however. The Stonehenge in WA was built by the railroad tycoon Sam Hill as a memorial to fallen WWI soldiers after he was incorrectly told the original was a place of human sacrifice. It is a full scale replica of the original prior to it's partial destruction.
Then I am glad I indicated my uncertainty regarding the spellink - which mitigates my ignorance by at least one whole ounce.
I still am in awe of your dedication and cunning to use this as a prop in your endeavor. J
Dedication, maybe a little, it was nearly 2 hours drive from home, and, I left the house at midnight. Cunning, well if you check out this map you may see it is the closest dark sky from my house, adjacent to Maryhill State Park, Stonehenge is pretty much a no brainer.
These new versions are very impressive, Ken (is there more coming or can I already select the favourite :)
If you will return there later I suggest to call beforehand and ask if it is still there. Analyzing by the hot colour and the steam it seems the whole place was very near to lift-off and follow the meteors.
hahaha I'll make sure I do call ahead you might be right. As for more comming I will have to see. I have been so busy since taking these that I haven't had much time to play with'em. I will have time this weekend and will see what I can come up with.
One of my biggest problems is that I do my first image and can't wait to upload it, I later look through things, refine my images and later regret uploading the first
