Once in life time.
"One single shot Milkyway, Lightning and a Meteor in one image."
As an Astrophotographer, I have always been fascinated by the beauty of the night sky. On my recent trip to the desert, I was fortunate enough to capture an image that comes once in a lifetime. Despite the heavy sandstorm, I persevered for three nights, waiting for the perfect moment to capture the Milkyway. Finally, last night, the sky cleared up for half an hour. I immediately grabbed my camera and started clicking. Just then, lightning struck, and I knew that I had to capture that too. And, as if fate was on my side, a meteor streaked across the sky, adding to the already magical scene. I couldn't believe my luck as I reviewed the images later. It was a moment that I will cherish forever.
