Breath – taking Meteor showers over geological wonder beach
As if this beach was not stunning enough- a meteor on top of the milky way brightening up the sky took it to a whole new level of beauty.
When it was announced last week that we would be treated to a meteor shower, there was only one place Coleford bricklayer, Jack Sargent was heading.
Jack, 22, from Gloucestershire made the trip down to the Jurassic coast on August 11 where he captured the meteors soaring past up above.
Jack said: “What makes this image cool for me is, it was a series of moments, put together to remind me of how amazing that evening truly was.
“Each time I saw one fly into my line of sight, I would wait, anticipating if I got it on camera. There is nothing like the suspense of waiting for your exposure to finish and seeing if you caught that.
In this image, Jack caught two unique things happening in the sky over the English Channel- the Milky Way and a series of meteors.
On a night Jack described as being very cold, he said the excitement and adrenaline took over any other feelings he had.
Even if those feelings were at times frustration thanks to a technical glitch with his equipment, Jack stuck with it.
Jack said: “This experience was a new one for me, in terms of going to specifically shoot the meteors in such an iconic place, and to be surrounded by fellow photographers. It felt welcoming like I belonged.
“The main difficulty I faced was a broken remote. I knew what my final image was going to look like, and for others to get this finished image, they would set their camera up, plug in their remote and the remote will take the pictures for you, until you tell it to stop.
“However, unfortunately for me, I had to stand there for 8 hours, clicking the shutter down, not leaving my camera in case I would miss a meteor which I missed plenty of.
