Out underneath an August summer night in hopes of catching a few snapshots of the Perseid meteor shower and to test out a few new 'tricks'. My trick shots turned out very well, the one that I liked the most being the star swirl! Laying out on the cool grass at the edge of Clarks Hill lake watching the stars shoot across the sky while my shots exposed made for a great night despite having to work the next morning. The price I pay for getting some shots, however it fully justified a nap the following afternoon! As I take more night exposures, the more I fall in love with what the night sky gives me in return!
