Ancient Star Gazer
Photo By Shane Mcdermott

  • Title: Ancient Star Gazer
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: White Mountains
  • Nearest Town: Big Pine
  • Brief Directions: Follow the signs to the Ancient Bristle Come pine forest out of Big Pine, Ca.

  • 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
