Michael's Dispatches

Shooting Star

4 Comments

16 December 2010

Six years ago this week, I was packing for my first trip to Iraq.  Been a long road.

Earlier this week, the annual Geminids meteor shower was a beautiful sight to behold.  Using 4 cameras, I made about 3,600 photos over the Andaman Sea.   Due to computer issues, I’ve been able to review only about 100 images so far.   Several meteors were in the first batch of images.

Please feel free to download this image for personal, one-time use.  Shooting Star.

Also, please buy my new book!

    I love your posts Michael and your photos. Bought Moment of Truth for my "kids". My oldest was in Afghanistan and Iraq so all of your posts hit home.
    Thanks so much for sharing and doing what you do. Stay safe.
