"I knew I had maybe two nights to capture the Perseid meteor shower, so I headed up to Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood and took the Pacific Crest Trail a mile or so away from the lodge and set everything up in this lupine meadow. This night was actually just supposed to be a test to see what I could get; it turned out to be just what I was looking for!" - Leif Smith
