Speed of Light

Photography is the art of capturing moments in light - an arrangement of photons that has never happened before and won’t again.

This perfect example was pure chance, as I’d been capturing the mountains and the moon when I noticed a boat about to pass. Then, at the moment I began my exposure, a SpaceX Starlink constellation whizzed past just beneath the moon, sending packets of data in patterns of photons back to Earth at the Speed of Light.
