Moon Machine

As I came out of dinner with my parents, I noticed the sun had set, the Moon was out and there was some nice orange light in the sky. I thought "too bad I missed this." But as luck would have it as we pulled out of the parking lot, I noticed these gravel/grain silos right across the street. So I pulled over, rolled down the window and tried to steady my camera against the door in the howling wind (man was it really whipping). It is a bit soft but what do you expect in gale force winds. I took a number of bracketed shots in the hopes of doing some HDRI work, but I really liked how some came out even without it.

(Where was this taken?)

Beautiful! I love the gradations in the sky and the way the silos are silhouetted. That sliver of moon is the cherry on the sundae. Very nice!

Thank you very much. I agree about the Moon. I took a few without it and they just seem to be lacking. Thanks for stopping by.
