A great deal of care­ful plan­ning, a long night of pho­tog­ra­phy and hours of painstak­ing im­age pro­cess­ing went into cre­at­ing this com­pos­ite im­age of the Per­seid me­teor shower. The beau­ti­ful Per­seid me­te­ors get their name from the con­stel­la­tion of Perseus, from where they ap­pear to come. How­ever, even at the peak of the shower it is im­pos­si­ble to pre­dict ex­actly when or where the next me­teor will ap­pear. I had to com­bine 23 in­di­vid­ual stills to con­vey the ex­cite­ment and dy­namism of this nat­u­ral fire­work dis­play – a real labour of pho­to­graphic love!
