Last Day in London

August 21st, 2012 No comments

On the last day in London, we strolled from Trafalgar Hotel down Whitehall, turned on Whitehall place towards Hungerford Bridge, crossed it to the South side and went on the Embankment to the London Eye. Even though it was Sunday there was not too many people to get on it. It took no more than 10 minutes to get the tickets, they have a lot of registers and the lines organized very well. After the Eye we went to the Westminster Bridge, crossing it back to the other side and took Whitehall back to the hotel.

Snowy Range Perseids Meteor Shower

Last night I went out to Snowy Range in Wyoming in search of dark skies for the Perseid meteor shower. I wanted something special for the foreground and I knew the Snowies faced in the perfect direction to get this shot. I started shooting at 10pm and didn’t stop until 5 am, I had to change my battery every 2 hours which made for a long night. The moon rose around 1am to light up the mountain range.

This is a composite of 23 images, 22 for the meteors/stars and 1 taken at sunrise for the foreground which was lightly blended in. I also corrected the orientation of the meteors to account for the rotation of the earth (this took forever!)

I had a great night which was made even better because I spent it with my newly adopted dog Emmie, she was a trooper!
