- Gem in I -

By cirrusminor    
Saturday night, clear skies for the geminids meteor shower.....

Id been anticipating for weeks, but didn't plan on having a stomach bug!

Plan B... left the camera in the garden til the lens froze over and took my chances!

Thank you all Smile
Really wish I had the energy to get out to a more dramatic location that night but really didnt feel like it.
Di..... I would have if you'd booked the ferry! The freezing temps would have killed any germs.
We dont get many opportunities in a year to do this sort of tography... moon and clouds often hamper!

I think it was the Persieds in August 2010 that me n Di staggered up one of the steepest and darkest hills on the Isle of Wight.
We snapped away until our cards were full and batteries dead, and then, about 2am, cameras packed away, the heavens set alight!
From that night... I was addicted!
