Blazing Bristlecone

This photo is the winner of the "Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2010": www.nmm.ac.uk/visit/exhibitions/astronomy-photographer-of...

 

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
