Joe - you're very kind. Coming from you, with your talents and work, it's a considerable compliment. Thank you!Ed, amazing. Just amazing. I was duly impressed with your photos before having a description of the behind-the-scenes work involved. Now I'm gobsmacked. Thanks for sharing your work as well as your process.
It's mostly sheer hard work and patience rather than anything magically creative... It did involve being there for about seven hours in the end (from capturing the twilight scene to waiting for the moon to set then shooting the stars).
