Yes, the ponds are dry right now and that sucks.

I was attempting to photograph the Perseid meteor shower and while we saw plenty of meteors, none of them went in front of my camera while I was shooting.

Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that contributes to the open challenge.

This is a pleasing scene and composition with subtle lighting on the bridge to give it a somewhat ghostly effect. I doubt whether the meteors would have registered with such a long shutter speed, although they can be quite bright they are so brief their light if it did register would be very insignificant. Tanguera's constructive comments are relevant but I actually think a softer focus adds to the atmosphere of the shot. I don't believe every shot always has to be pin sharp there is definitely a place for soft focus and OOF. All in all a pleasing result Craig, thanks for sharing

Very lovely. Having tried this sort of thing myself, I know how difficult it is to focus in the dark. This image seems to miss it's mark just a tish.
