"Geminids over Needle's Eye"
Each streak of light viewed that night brought a connection to the worlds beyond. Specks of star dust traveling for time indeterminate before ending in fire.
The annual Geminids meteor shower over Needle's Eye in Custer State Park, South Dakota. To create this image I photographed throughout the night while catching occasional Zzzs beneath this impressive show. This image is a composite of 23 meteors captured during the shower combined with light painting of the rock formation.
