Waiting for Perseid
You'd never know it by looking at this shot but the sky wasn't ask clear as we would have liked. Scott and I trekked up Sleeping Beauty lookout to get a great night view of the Perseid meteor shower. Although we did see a few meteors, it dried up not long after sundown. I wasn't able to capture much more than planes and satellites in the end. And although I did manage to capture a meteor or two, they results were a bit lackluster. We ended up playing with star trails and light painting the area on the way back. It was a great evening otherwise, with perfect temps and nary a breeze. So calm and relaxing to be up so high with nothing around you but the sound of silence.
