- Description: I had planned this shot for about a year. I knew I wanted to be in the while mountains during the perseid meteor showers in hopes of capturing a beautiful Bristle Cone Pine tree against the milky way and possible a shooting meteor - being there at the right time, would at least give me a chance. Much to my surprise, I captured two meteors! of the 30 or images I took that night, this was the only one the had meteors in it, and it was easily my favorite composition.
- Gear: Nikon D3S, Nikon 17-35 2.8
