Look beyond the stars

During the Perseid meteorshower 2015 I had an amazing photographic experience!

I wanted to try out some night photography of the Milky Way for the first time so I found a very dark place around 30 km from where I live and went there. It was so amazingly beautiful and dark at the location. I have actually never before seen the Milky Way with my naked eyes, but there it was!

Among the photos I managed to capture this “selfie” with three meteors from the Perseid meteor shower in the shot!

I used a 20 sec self-timer so that I had some time to get up there. Then I had to stand still for the 30 sec exposure.
