Shooting star over Ballyhoura, Co. Cork

Shooting star over Ballyhoura, Co. Cork

I was going through a few shots from my holidays last year in the Munster area & found this shot of a shooting star appearing over the forest where we were staying. I've no idea why I didn't blog this one before. Maybe because I'd taken quite a few shots of the ISS & shooting stars during that holiday. Anyway, here it is now. Hopefully I'll get to go back to this area again as there was so little light pollution & I would love to get a few more shots like this.

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II (Canon)
Camera Lens:
Focal Length: 25 mm
