And if you're partial to the night sky…

Shooting stars and the Milky Way

Spent the past few days tripping up the coast to Northern California with only a vague skeleton of a plan on a much needed vacation.

This was my view last night from a campground 9 miles off Highway 1 in Big Sur, up a narrow winding road that made the 1 seem like a straight shot. I’m glad we started shooting when we did, because about an hour later the just-past-full moon rose and completely obliterated the Milky Way, along with most of the stars.

It’s amazing what a 30 second exposure can reveal.
