Shooting the Perseid Meteor Shower

The 2016 Perseid Meteor Shower peaked on the morning of August 12th. I set out with a friend to Buffalo Park in Flagstaff, Arizona to capture the shower. We arrived around 10 PM, a time during which the moon was still a couple hours from setting. This allowed me to capture a well-lit foreground shot that I would use to layer all the brightest meteors that I captured through the night.
