Pop Art Perseid

Is there anything better than the night sky full with stars?

Last night I went out to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower and attempt some practice with photographing the night sky… My goal is to become much better with the settings on my DSLR, so I was playing around and ended up with these “pop art” style shots – kinda fun, yeah?! These are raw from my camera – just a weirdly wonderful combination of the white balance, aperture setting, and just plain old light pollution from my neighbors’ houses making the trees appear orange. I also managed to break my tripod during the process, so this is just my camera lying the trunk of my car pointed straight up at the sky, but I actually kind of love it. Sometimes a comedy of errors can produce some cool stuff.
