I was soooo excited about the meteor shower a few weeks ago. I had never seen one, and somehow got it in my head that it would be like natural occurring fireworks . I'm sad to say, it was nothing like that. In fact, I saw 1 meteor, then waited, waited, and then....fell asleep. And started snoring, and only awoke to hear all my friends laughing at me. BUT, the good news is, it was a beautiful night. We hiked up to a hill in the Marin headlands, laid out a blanket, popped open some wine, and hung out under the stars. Here is one of the long exposure pictures I took from that night. Sadly, no meteor shower shooting across the frame like I had hoped, and the stars aren't even that impressive, but I like it nonetheless.
