Capturing the International Space Station as it shot across the skies of southern Scotland involved careful planning, hours of patience, and many litres of chai tea.

Finally, at 1am, we were able to get this shot. For me, the interplay between the streak of the Space Station’s mighty solar panels as it streaks across the face of the galaxy, juxtaposed with the stillness and calm of the landscape, is breathtaking and rare… but not as rare as the opportunity to shoot in Scotland, at night, without a jacket.
