Enchanted Rock Summer Night Milky Way

Enchanted Rock State Park

This old tree sits on the back side of Enchanted Rock. It is one of my favorite objects to use as foreground when photographing this wonderful location. On this night, I used my astrotrac to take long exposures of the Milky Way. While I do plan these images well before I leave my house, capturing a meteor in the shot is always just a bit lucky. I did not realize it was there until I was processing the final product the next day at my house. While this image was planned out well in advance, I was very fortunate to capture a meteor streaking across the sky. Sometimes it pays to be a little lucky, as well!
