Dennis Behm 7/1/2012 4:42:16 AM

Superb image, Paul! I like the complementary colors, and the triangle formed by the horizon and the shoreline. #10208629

Paul R. Nelson 7/1/2012 6:00:00 AM

Thank you, Arthur, my friend. Thank you also Mike, Carol and Dennis. Everything came together just right, for which I am very grateful, and thankful I was there at the right time. Lake Superior was unusually calm, I never anticipated seeing the sun lighting up the Northern horizon, and I not only captured a meteor, but also Jupiter rising in the lower right corner. I can't take credit for most of that. #10208739

David Resnikoff 7/1/2012 8:11:48 AM

Fantastica, Maravillosa.

Perfect balance

Thank you, David, thank you, Carla, your comments are very much apprediated. This cost me a night of sleep, but it sounds like it was worth it. #10209275

Philip B. Ludwig 7/1/2012 3:11:02 PM

Very, very nice.It's so neat that you captured the meteor. Love everything about this one. #10209552

Paul R. Nelson 7/1/2012 3:53:31 PM

Thank you, Philip. I've gone out several times hoping to catch meteors during various meteor showers just to have it cloud up, so this one means a lot to me, even if it was just due to luck. #10209590

I love the color in addition to the composition. The shooting star really adds to the overall image as well. Great image! #10235505

Paul R. Nelson 7/18/2012 6:27:12 PM

Thank you Howard. I especially appreciate you taking the time to let me know what you appreciate about this image, and I agree about the meteor. I have a number of others without it, and they don't have the same impact. I feel fortunate to have captured the meteor and that it is where it is; anywhere else wouldn't work as well. #10235565

Thank you, Susan. The notice of this was one of a couple high points in an emotionally challenging weekend. #10253406

Susan Williams 7/30/2012 8:24:00 PM

Spectacular accomplishments are always balanced by a degree of humbleness. The real prize is the one we quietly carry inside, remembering the feeling of being there while the camera did its work. #10253524

Paul R. Nelson 7/30/2012 8:59:38 PM

From that perspective it is already a prize-winning image as it was a very memorable and enjoyable night; Lake Superior was calm, the sky was beautiful, and I had it all to myself. #10253632
