Perseid Meteor Over the Blue Ridge Mountains

At the lowest point of the Blue Ridge Parkway you will find this scene (The beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and the James River). Easily one of the most visited spots along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. I took this off the bridge at the James River Visitors Center late at night after about 6 hours of patiently waiting for a Perseid Meteor. The wait was worth it.
