Milky Way in the Vineyard

I waited -- and waited -- and waited -- from 1AM to 4AM n August 12, 2015 for a meteor to fly. While taking 169 exposures, each lasting 25 seconds, at least a dozen times throughout the night a Perseid Meteor would streak across the sky just seconds after my shutter closed. Despite the lack of shooting star I really like the composition of this moment which includes chardonnay grapes lit by my led headlamp and a lone redwood tree.
