Perseid Meteor Shower // starstruck

This was my first try at astrophotography - I think I fell in love. ;)

These are from the Perseid Meteor Shower as seen from the Ramon Crater in the Negev Desert of Israel - My husband and I drove for 6 hours, did 3 hours of stargazing, saw HUNDREDS of meteors (!), and were stuck on the side of the freeway with a flat tire for an hour! We got home at 6am. A big thanks to my awesome hubby who did all the driving, stayed awake all night with me, changed the flat tire, and who then woke up to go to work just a few hours later.
