I wanted a Vivid Surreal or Dreamlike feel. So I composed using five different photos I took with my Canon 50 D cameras. The background is shot of the Gulf of Alaska from a cruise ship balcony after midnight in July 2010. Moon shot with a Canon and long telephoto. The Big Dipper (state symbol of Alaska) and Stars from eastern horizon using 30 second shots from my backyard. The two WW II fighter planes, Curtiss P-40 and P-51 Mustang from The War Hawk Museum (Nampa, Idaho) were captured during The Caldwell (Idaho) Air Show.
