Waiting for the Stars

Waiting for the Stars - Explore 407Fernando at the Champlain Lookout. We went up last night to see the Perseides, but I didn't have much luck with the stars. I did, however, manage to get a few decent shots of the sunset... :-)

There was quite a crowd at the lookout, with headlights constantly sweeping the parking lot and one guy helpfully pointing out the meteors with a laser pointer... nice for the regular stargazers, but not so nice for the photographers. And the mosquitoes were vicious! We thought we'd seen the last of them for this year after we went to Meech Lake and were left unmolested, but apparently they are still thriving in other parts of the Park.

This particular shot is my 100th Explore on Flickr.
