Nikon D810, Nikon 14-24 lens, f2.8, ISO 2500, 25 second exposure, tripod.
A rare clear winter sky on the Oregon coast. I wanted to capture a meteor over the ocean with a nice foreground included. I went to one of my favorite lacations. I composed what I would be appropriate for my needs. I set the camera to take 2 exposures per minute X 3 hours. The result was a good number of Geminids and a half dozen of what I would descibe as huge. This is one of those. A very good night of viewing and shooting.
