2013 Perseid Meteor Shower

More time chasing fleeting objects in the night sky. Truly a spectacular meteor shower visible in Northern California this year. Most of these images were taken in Nevada County, CA along Hwy 20. On 8/11 and over night into 8/12 I traveled along Hwy 20, I-80, Hwy 89 to Sierraville, CA and back to Grass Valley stopping along the way to photograph. Unfortunately thick smoke from a forest fire cut the evening short. All photographs are single shot images.
