And to all those who assisted or participated on other nights in the last few months.

This was imagined by myself a little over a year ago as a little side project whilst I was in between expeditions.
For all involved this was a test of concept – we were just looking to see what difference a drone mounted light would make.
With current technology it’s now possible to take not just camera’s but lighting as well into what used to be ‘hard to shoot’ locations.
And we’re pleased with the result – it was truly something else.

Hope you enjoy it.
