Blazing Bristlecone

This photo is the winner of the "Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2010":


White Mountains, California. An ancient Bristlecone Pine stands before the Milky Way as a meteor streaks the sky.


(I accidentally cast some artificial light onto the tree while setting up my dolly timelapse move.)


Canon 5D Mark II. ISO 3200. 32-second exposure. 16mm. f/3.2
