I tried my hand tonight at chasing meteor showers instead of a bride. :)Â The Perseids meteor shower has been something that I have been reading about over the last few days with the hope that I would be able to get at least one shot of a meteor.Â So I had everything all set up and ready to go.Â I have just come inside after about an hour of at least 10 mosquito bites, my feet areÂ soaked (sandals are not a good idea for meteor hunting), and zero shots of any meteors.Â I am curious to know if this is the way everybody starts off.Â I can see this as probably one of the last times that I try this type of photography.Â Not saying that I am quiting, but too much work for not enough results.Â Here it is at 3am and I could have taken these same shots at about 10pm.Â Do you get the feeling that frustration is creeping in here? 🙂
I felt like I was in a little bit of a guessing game out there…I think I saw one…hmm…nope.Â Well…maybe it was…I am not really sure what it is that I am looking for to be exact.Â My guess is that I should have gone to bed and gotten up early to see if I could catch something before sunrise, but I have a bunch of sessions tomorrow, so that was not happening.
Anyways…I did manage a couple of cool shots while I was out there…but I wasn’t able to get anything from Perseid.Â
