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.
