‘An Infinite Bond’ – The Milky way over the Azure Window

After the unexpected collapse of the Azure Window last March, I wanted to celebrate our lost natural icon by making my Milky Way panorama – ‘An Infinite Bond’ – available as a large
50 x 50” framed art print, for a limited run of 33.

This was my most challenging panorama so far, and also the largest in resolution. Composed from 45 frames, it has a maximum resolution of 847MP, making it ideal to be printed large with out losing detail.

Since I started shooting panoramas, my goal was always to, one day, shoot this magical place under the majestic Milky Way, arching from West to North in the Summer night sky. I wanted to fit in one image all the interesting features this place had to offer. Little I knew that shooting at the edge would give me a circular effect when combining all the images together. Visually looking like a closed circle, this creates an infinite bond between the Earthly elements of land and sea with the night sky. The rough sea was a bonus that night, which added movement and texture to the shoreline.

This image carries with it also a sentimental value. Another unexpected loss which came too soon. I captured this scene on the 22nd of August 2015, in the early morning hours of my Mum’s 66th Birthday. Little did I know that I had to lose her a few weeks later. She was suffering from a blood disorder (MDS) which required a marrow transplant, but unfortunately other conditions always pushed back this from happening, until it was too late.

So this is also my personal tribute to a loving Mum, who shaped the person I am today.
In Memory of Maria Stella Vancell — my loving Mum, my guiding Star.
