    Time for another image in my "alone in the dark"-series. Tonight was a great night. I saw the most beautiful shooting star I could ever imagine. I mean I've seen a couple in the past years, but this one ... it actually looked like a giant fireball heading down to earth. It was so big, I was even scared for a moment, before it disappeared. Probably it seemed that impressive because it was pretty close to me, but anyway, it was a stunning experience.

    Feeling inspired by this event, I came up with this image. I usually don't like milky way shots because often, they're just too cliché. But seeing those two beautiful, incredibly bright stars there led me to create something different, despite the milky way being in place.

    The thing is that almost anything we shoot has some sort of version out there and can be considered "cliche. "

    The trick is to find something that apeals to you and try and add your own flare.

    25 seconds @ 12mm, f/2.8 and ISO 1600. So pretty standard stuff for starscapes.
