Waiting For The Great Pumpkin

Waiting For The Great Pumpkin

September is the end of Milky Way season in the Northern Hemisphere. I joined a group of photographers for a quick trip out to the Pumpkin Patch in Anza Borrego State Park to attempt a little astrophotography.

The Pumpkin Patch is made up of spheroid shaped rocks, geologically known as concretions. While not rare, it is not often you find them in large groupings like this. Anza Borrego is hot this time of year, the temperatures were above 100°F at sunset, and only cooled down to the mid-90's, by the time I departed around 21:30.

As the group began to pack up and prepare for departure, I captured a last frame that caught the red tail-lights illuminating the more distant "pumpkins" in an almost orange hue, and I thought of Linus with his faithful pal Charlie Brown waiting in the patch for the Great Pumpkin to appear.
