Is this art, or an abandoned bonfire frame?

I'm not sure what this stack of driftwood on the riverbank today is... perhaps Covington's version of crop circles? I should have twisted up a couple of those Blair Witch totem twig/wicker dolls and left them scattered around to complete the vibe.

Reviewing the post, I realize that the perspective and the very short lens makes it look like a little campfire stack. I didn't walk down to see it up close, but it looked taller than my 6 feet.

Star falling through a hole in the clouds

From Covington Blog 2009
It was almost completely overcast at 5am when I tried to catch the Leonid meteor shower, but I did capture a couple through brief gaps in the clouds. Tomorrow is supposed to be raining here, but Asia may get a brief outburst of up to 500 per hour as we pass through the debris trail left by the source comet in 1466.
