Leonids Trip to Big Sur - Meteors Wide 2

Meteors Wide 2

2001-11-18 ca. 3AM-4AM PST, EF 17-35 f/2.8 @ 17mm f/2.8, ISO400, exposure time = ?
This might be a 15-minute exposure. The weird pattern is produced by a combination of the earth's rotation and the lens' rectilinear distortion. Everything that doesn't match the general pattern is a meteor. There are at least 5 in this picture.
