Thanks guys :) and to think this shot almost didn't happen... Was 11.30pm on a school night when a mate txt me wanting to meet up at the Satellite farm, I had already spent a while shooting the MW at a different location, 2ºC so was a bit chilly. I decided heck why not, so drove out to this location and shot until 1am :) glad I did!

I'm waiting to see a shot of yours that I don't like, don't think it will happen.

Huge fan of your work.
