Went out last sunday to watch the Perseids and brought along my camera in the hopes of catching something. I found a fairly dark area on a dirt road about a mile off of the highway. Had just gotten my camera set up and adjusted to the darkness when a highway patrol man drove out and shone his high beams in my eyes and checked my id and registration. He couldn't quite understand why I would be out at 3AM on a dirt road. I tried explaining that I was taking pictures of the meteors and needed to get away from the city. He kept asking me if it was a night vision camera and if I had the receipt for it. After dispatch looked up my drivers license and it came back with no record he decided I must be harmless and drove away. Sometime after that my patience paid off and I got this shot. Hope you enjoy.
