The meteor shower peaked on the 12th I have been out 3 times, saw a few on the 10th and the rest of the time clouds were in the way. Last night it finally cleared I went out the back yard and looked for some time around midnite and a bit later then some clouds rolled in again. I did get to take a couple of 30 second shots looking over the house at the Milky Way. Click to enlarge.
First time in Gowganda was 1968 with the Dept. of Lands and Forests, doing a soil and vegetation study for the Wildlife Productivity Inventory. While here found the country amazing, the boreal forest the lakes at every turn and the air clean and fresh. It didn't take long back then to get the camera out and start recording some of the sights I'd seen. Since then with a few layoffs in photography its good to get right back at it. Putting your pictures on a blog like this forces you to go out and take more pics, which is the goal of this site.
