-Illuminated Pinnacles-

PinnaclesMorning
I ventured up to the Pinnacles a couple of nights ago to see if it could catch the annual Geminid Meteor shower.
It was a great show, at one stage in the morning after the almost full moon set in the west, we were seeing a few meteors a minute. A few, “did you see that, whoaaa, did you see that other one….”.
After last years effort and great show, and now this years, I will be sure to make this an annual event I will never miss.

My goal for the night was to capture a time-lapse of the night sky again, so not being able to move my camera around I didn’t capture many meteors. However the time-lapse came out great. (Will be released sometime this week)
I think I will need to invest in another camera shortly, to hopefully capture the ones I would otherwise miss.

Morning light over the Pinnacles

As dawn broke, the meteors we had come to see were getting fainter and fainter, but lucky for us, as one show was finishing another started. Morning light was now filtering through the Pinnacles. I just love the colours we are all treated to every morning.

Milky way over the Pinnacles

Last night I visited the Pinnacles near Cervantes to capture the annual Geminid meteor shower. It was the first time for me to try and capture this amazing event, and it surely didn’t disappoint. The first visible meteors were visible from about 9pm, and were fairly infrequent. Though at around 1130pm-12am they really did start firing up right into the morning. A few large fireball meteors as well as countless others were visible. A truly incredible event that has certainly got me hooked and ignited a interest in astronomical photography.
Thanks to Grahame for your guidance and knowledge last night. I hope we can do it more often. Thanks mate.

This particular photo was taken at the break of dawn. The milky way was just spectacular and I did copy a shot Grahame got, but it was too good to miss.
