There was this old farmhouse outside of Petrolia that I wanted to do some light painting with so we drove out to the location and shot all night hoping to catch some meteors. This is a 42 image time stack composite showcasing the best meteors of the night. I was really pleased how it came out and I definitely plan to come back to this spot again.

It went on to dump a huge amount of rain and hail near the great dividing range.

Here is my final image from spending about 5 hours outside shooting the shower and then layering in the best and brightest meteors that occurred over the the aircraft into one final shot. Shot using a Nikon D810 and Nikon 14-24mm lens. Settings: ISO 1600 - F2.8 - 30". Hope you all enjoy!
