Perseid Meteor Shower over Island Pond, ME

     
  Perseid Meteor Shower over Island Pond, ME  
     
A clear, dark sky and a calm lake (Island Pond in northern Maine) make an ideal setting for shooting the annual Perseid meteor shower. I usually figure 30 seconds as my tolerance for avoiding star trails in 14mm photos. This exposure duration is long enough to catch a meteorite in most images during this active shower.
