For anyone living in a mostly crowded Europe, this quote seems a bit… silly:
Unfortunately, we lived in an area of Australia which had a lot of light pollution that stopped us from being able to pursue it so we decided to relocate to New Zealand in March this year.
An area in Australia with lots of light pollution may well exist, but I’m guessing such areas are exceptions rather than the rule! Anyway, Jake and Jo probably just needed an excuse to move to New Zealand and start photographing. Which they are doing well, it seems. I have tried my own hand at photographing the Milky Way, but their work is much more impressive.
