Ever yell, OOOHHH did you see that.......!!! As giddy as a school boy, in the middle of a 2 minute photo? So excited you can't think of the word meteor, for about 30 seconds??????? ..... No.... ok.... ...Maybe that was just me last night with 4 other awesome photographers at Forgetmenot Pond in Kananaskis. Thanks Daron, Steve, Glen and Leo for making that a wonderful night, stumbling around the mountains in the dark. Now if I could only find my glove I dropped somewhere out there. My fingers are finally thawed out. lol Doh! But hey I got a meteor shot! Look at the left corner... boom baby! #meteor #astrophotography #forgetmenotpond #winter #roadtrip #visitAlberta #nightphotography #stars #travel #travelphotographer #travelphotos #landscapephotography #photographer #exploreAlberta #mountains #Calgaryphotographer #Alberta #Canada #liveadventurously #welltravelled #landscape #landscapephotographer #kananaskis #canon #sigma #canonCanada #SigmaCanada
