Meteor over McWay

from 165.00

A Gemenid meteor streaks over McWay falls as it is lit by the setting moon in Big Sur CA.  We drove all night from LA watching the meteors flash through the sky.  By the time we arrived at Big Sur it was nearly dawn and the nearly full moon was setting over the Pacific ocean.  The light was so dim we could barely make out the scene, but I could tell that the moonlight was casting a dramatic glow on the falls.  I set up my camera and left the shutter open for 10 minutes while hoping we would get a big meteor, and we did!  Just in time too, less than a minute later the moon set and the falls descended back into darkness. To me this image captures both the beauty of Big Sur and the magnificence of the heavens, it's one of my favorites.
