A winter's night spent shivering on the side of Canopus Lake in upstate NY. I got stopped by a cop, who ruined one of my shots, proceeded to apologize, and seemed relieved that I was shooting digitally. Poor guy. I was so cold that night, but I've come to realize that when I'm shooting stars I very rarely feel the elements around me. The thrill of what my lens will pick up that my eyes cannot is truly stunning and helps to remove yourself from the world around you. At the same time, it reminds you of how small you are, how humble, when the universe appear before you in so many tiny pinpricks of light. © 2011-2014.
There is a meteorite shower this coming Monday and Tuesday, in the Delta Aquarids region (near Pegasus). Hopefully the nights will be clear.....
