Perseid meteor shower

Stayed up most of the night for this. I saw over 100 meteors, but most were too dim to pick up on the camera, even at F3.5 and 1600ISO. With temps crashing to the dewpoint, I was fighting condensation on the camera/lens and fog all night. The valley fog turned out to at least make the foreground a little interesting, once I found a spot high enough to get above it. Here are a couple quick shots from near Big Chimney looking northeast.
