Houston, We Have A Problem With This Weird Horizon

David McMahon

Melbourne, Australia

Artist's Description

One of the reasons I like this image is that I think it forces you to look twice, to try and work out whether this was shot from outer space, through the window of a space shuttle.
The simple answer is no, I haven’t been on a NASA mission, although I’m waiting for them to call me!
I was shooting a Melbourne sunset a couple of years ago when I followed one of my own cardinal rules and looked AWAY from the main subject to see if there was anything else I could shoot.
Yes, there certainly was – this was what I saw reflected in the bottom segment of the windscreen of my own car.
Lucky shot – I had parked the car on the spur of the hill in just the right place. No science. No measuring of angles. No celestial geometry. Just a case of lucky positioning.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my work in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/60sec, ISO 400, focal length 125mm.
