Perseid Meteors over Mt. Cephren

By: Alan Dyer


Region: Americas

Site: Banff National Park - Canada

Spot: Waterfowl Lakes

Date: 2014 August 11

From the photographer: "Photo composite of two Perseid meteors on August 11, 2014, the night before the peak of the meteor shower. They are caught in two separate exposures and composited into one frame. The ground is mostly from one frame with some lighting on the mountains contributed from the second frame. Illumination is from the nearly Full Moon (one day past a supermoon) off frame to the left. It is casting cloud shadows across the sky. The lake was calm for some shots and added the reflection. The two blended frames are part of a 555-frame time-lapse, with the Canon 5D Mark II and Rokinon 14mm lens, taken in hopes of catching some meteors. Each frame was 15 seconds at f/2.8 and ISO 3200."
