Perseids Meteors from Mam Tor

I have a fascination with the night sky and I think it’s all about seeing somewhere I’ll never get to visit. So, last night I dragged my other half to the Peak District and walked up the steep path to the summit of Mam Tor with reclining deck chairs, the D810 with 14-24mm and Tripod to watch and hopefully capture some of the meteors.

The Peak District is classed as a Dark Sky area, but to be honest, with the likes of Manchester and Sheffield not too far away, it’s not that dark hence the orange glow on the clouds. However, I’m pretty pleased with the outcome of this shot capturing 3 of the meteors in a 25 second exposure.
