What an evening… What a treat!
I love contrast. Be it in the physical, emotional, or spiritual elements of my life, I love contrast. So after an outstanding lamb confit with sweet potato mash courtesy of The Oak at Gretton with my good friend and top designer geezer Christian (all very civilised), I got in the car, turned the key in the ignition, and was confronted – at max volume – by Public Enemy, giving it large with “Rebel Without a Pause”. What a tune! I arrived home 10 mins later and set the tripod up in the back garden to try and catch the Perseid Meteor Shower. And pulled this out of the bag. Thank you God (if you exist). Thank you Universe (for the meteors). And thank you Canon (for letting me capture and share it all). Two comets in the frame, set against the backdrop of the Milky Way… I feel very lucky indeed.
P.S. Sorry if this takes a minute or two to download, but the I tested the low res and it just didn’t cut it, so I’ve uploaded the high res jpeg. Enjoy…!
