Today’s post comes from my recent trip to South Dakota’s Badlands National Park, where I traveled in early August for the Perseids meteor shower.
While waiting for meteors to begin flying overhead, the Milky Way was stretched up towards the heavens, from the southern horizon:
Such a beautiful sight, late in the evening, solitude all around (only an occasional car driving by) … a little tranquility in today’s hectic world!
I’m still working with meteor images, and hope to have some ready to share soon!
