At first it looks as if we’ve stumbled across an idyllic little cottage and an abandoned boat at night, alone under a blanket of stars. As we see with the pullback, is a staged setup, made up of clever miniatures photographed from a perspective to make the small set look life-size. It’s the work of Samy Al Olabi, photographed under a beautiful sky in the United Arab Emirates.
We love miniature work, and think this is an especially clever use of it. The Milky Way really comes alive, and brings the set pieces into it. Via Petapixel:
