Immerse yourself in the power of Degracias

Today, to celebrate the world day of photography, I bring you a capture that is very special to me and that has long yearned to share here. Photographed a year ago, this image shows the Degracias Wind Farm (Leiria, Portugal) under one of the greatest meteor showers of the year, before dawn of 10th August 2013. On the right side of the image it's possible to see the trail of one of these meteors, just below the Milky Way represented here as an arc. This meteor shower, called Perseids, has its radiant situated in Persus constellation and it was already the target of my lens in 2012 and its registry shared here as you can recall in the following link: Technical details:
Pano of 26 vertical shots (13up+13down).
