Taken at cape Zavala, between Montenegro towns of Budva and Becici on coast of Adriatic sea
This was the third year in row that I missed the spectacular main event of Perseids meteor shower. Last two years it was full moon and this cloud storm came in and spoiled the fun.
Never the less as soon sky cleared (two nights later
) I went to the prepared location and did this image.
Unfortunately combination of light pollution and low ISO did not produce many meteor trails but a nice long startrail it did.
Canon 15mm fisheye
330x32 sec ~ for total of approximately 3h of startrails
Triggered with Magic Lantern 2.3 (IT WORKS like a charm)
Final image is two image vertical fisheye panorama ~ 180x180 degrees
with stacked star trail on top and light painted bottom frame.
Light painting was done by a hand held MAGlite torch(rocks) and a unsuspecting scuba diver who passed* by and lit the water. (*MANY THANKS FOR THAT WHO EVER YOU ARE!!!)
