A single captured Persied

A couple of days after the peak of the Perseid meteor shower, I was able to capture one stray nearly 180 degrees from the constellation of Perseus, from which the shower seems to originate from. The vista in that direction was decidedly less interesting so I thought I'd shoot some star trails behind the iconic Temple Crag and see what happens. The one vertical line on the left side in a stray Perseid that was captured by my 30 minute shutter.
