Meteor Streak

Last night my son and I hopped in the car and travelled upstream of the Inniscarra dam on the River Lee around here where I hoped it would be fairly dark to shoot the Perseids meteor shower.

The sunset was lovely and I’ll be posting photos of that over the next few days but I was disappointed at the light pollution from Cork City on the clouds above. It was only by almost 2230 that the clouds moved away and more of the sky became visible.

I saw one meteor streak through the upper atmosphere to the north-north-east, while my son saw one almost overhead. Disappointing but we were getting tired so near 2300 I took a few photos of the sky. The very last photo I took was to the west and I liked how it looked but when I saw it on my laptop this morning I noticed the streak of a meteor at the top of the frame!

The photo was a 30 second exposure, f/4 at 2000 ISO.

The tree in the wheat field

On the way to Rocky Bay last week we spotted this field so we just had to take a few photos! This is also the first photo I’ve used Affinity Photo on. The original image is below.

I used the inpainting tool in Affinity Photo to get rid of the branches on the left and a few other things. I did try the same in Lightroom but the clone and heal tools just didn’t work nearly as well. Affinity photo is easy to set up as an external editor in Lightroom, and it even supports 16 bit colour which is a big bonus when working on images!

Parts of Páirc Uí Chaoimh in Blackrock are being demolished as part of the somewhat controversial redevelopment of the area. This Examiner article has some photos and a video of the stadium before demolition:
