A beautiful meteor display is put on each summer courtesy of comet Swift–Tuttle. I observed the shower from my home in the suburbs of Richmond VA and despite the moderate light pollution thoroughly enjoyed the the show.
This photography is a composite of 24 of the brightest meteors images taken during a two hour time span in the early morning hours of Aug 12, 2016. Following the direction from which meteors appear to originate shows the radiant point in the constellation Perseus for all but the one sporadic meteor (top left).
A moment of quiet reflection, thinking about the many times I've been to this lake. Frozen in the winter, shrouded in mist of fall. Memories of fantastic things I've seen standing not far from its banks; aurora, fireballs, meteor showers, galaxies, comets... they are still there or at least the memories, reflected in that lake.
Richmond, Below The 9th Street Bridge
Perhaps one of the best spots to see the city of Richmond on the James. This view from the south end of the Manchester bridge on the flood wall walk was taken just before sunset.
