Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

Moonset

Perfect challenge this week!

Shot this on Wednesday a bit before 7am following the lunar eclipse.  I’ve been shooting the moon a good bit these past few months and had been really waiting for the timing to be right to get catch a moonset just ahead of the sunrise.  (There is something really magical about the sky when there’s a clear changing of the guard between the moon and the sun.)  The moisture in the air above the horizon obscures the moon — giving it that dreamy quality I’d been looking for.  I underexposed a good two stops to punch the atmosphere’s red orange color onto the moon’s face.  I’ve got a few more images coming out of this little predawn excursion–can’t wait to share those with you.
