Hello! What’s up? I’ve been painting indoor walls for the past three days and I’m knocked down. Tired…. But! I did find time to go watching my favorite meteor shower of the year – Perseids! 😀 As you will soon find out I am a freak for every kind of nature thing, or change of weather, or anything really. I am fascinated by shooting stars (which are Perseids, kinda 🙂 ), stars in general, moon, sky, sun, sunsets, clouds… Sea… Trees… Yap. Anything. Something more, something less. The good thing is that I have awesome Canon camera to take thousands of pictures. 😀 Prepare yourself for a lot of photos on this blog, don’t say I didn’t warn you. 😉 And I think I’m actually good at it, so I have my camera and my confidence, awesome combo.
If you want to know what exactly Perseids are – click, click. You can see them every year in the middle of August. This year they are visible until August 24, but this past weekend was the best view. Also, they are visible only on Northern hemisphere.
Aaaaany way, people living in city know how frustrating is trying to focus on the stars, the city lights are to bright and create light area over the sky known as light pollution. So I have to find some kind of dark spot every year, which is not as easy as it sounds because every dark area is covered by street light, and if you go to parks or woods the trees are blocking the view. I was so lucky to absolutely accidentally find awesome place – like a hill with woods around. The view was breath-taking, I brought blanket with me, lay down on grass and just relax. 🙂
I have to brag, I saw 10 (in letters TEN) shooting stars, of which four were magnificent. Past years I was lucky if I saw one or two of them. I’m definitely coming back on that hill next year.

What are you waiting for, grab a blankie and your significant other and go watch some Perseids. 😉
