Photo By: Rick Whitacre (Links below).

I’ve come across a few spectacular renderings of this year’s Perseids meteor shower and this one is just as good as any, wow! Created by Rick Whitacre on August 13, 2013 and what better setting/foreground can you have other than the mighty Half Dome and the rest of Yosemite National Park rising from the California forests. Yet another spectacular job not just on the meteor captures but then entire photo as a whole.
