Shoot for the Stars

A shooting star taken in the foothills of Mt. Hood.
Funny story on how I got the shot. After wrapping up my milky way composition for the night, I turned to the southwest and fired off some shots with these bare trees in frame thinking, this looks neat why not shoot it? I always shoot the night sky on a self timer that takes 9 photos in a row and happened to catch a shooting star during one.

The colors in the sky are magnificent. You should have entered this bad boy in the 'lucky' themed contest a while ago

Thanks Ewan. The transition of night to dawn made for a really cool color scheme. The light pollution from Portland enhanced it further with the orange glow. I always seem to miss when they announce those contests lol.
