Without knowing otherwise, one could see midnight, mid-Atlantic… as a photograph of star clusters glowing in outer space; in truth, Duncan Ganley took this photograph from his airplane window while traveling from the United States to Iceland. Ganley employs digital-imaging software to manipulate the photograph, increasing the horizontal vista to create the illusion of an almost limitless horizon encompassing both sun and moon.
