This image of the Milky Way is one I made several weeks back while on a camping trip with friends in Stanislaus National Forest in Northeastern CA. USA.
While imaging the sky I saw several shooting stars, and hoped I’d capture some on film. I got lucky and got one in this frame. You see it streaking down in the upper left of the frame.
The Bootes Meteor Shower was happening on this night, but don’t think this is one of those. This is coming from the wrong direction.
It was a gorgeous night, and the sky was gorgeous filled with so many stars.

Deb this is gorgeous what a beautiful capture. Were you also using torches to light up the trees and bridge?
Thank you so much Paula! Yes, we were using a light to light-paint the foreground.
