Perseid Storm on the High Plains

This amazing shot, produced  from eight 30 second exposures  really highlights some brilliant photography.  There is so much to see in this image, the Perseid meteor streak in the upper center is just one aspect.  Just above the streak you have our distant neighboring galaxy Andromeda.  Even clouds cannot hold back the might of the planet Jupiter.  Mother Earth was not to be denied some glory either by showing off her own light show on the Colorado plains.

It’s this type of photography that inspires and humbles me for the shots I take of my own.

    Unfortunately for myself, here in Nebraska, my area was obscured by cloud cover so I missed the show all together. I have heard from others in surrounding areas that they were able to catch some of the shower.
