Violet is the most energtic color of the visible spectrum, and for that reason, is probably the rarest in photographic capture. The result here is a bit surreal, but I think the Moon and trees offer enough familiarity for artistic license.

The observable Universe sprang into existence 13.7 billion years ago, and has evolved to observe itself. In my opinion, there’s no greater event to consider. I enjoy astronomy, photography, and time with my wife and little boy. While capturing and editing photos, I jam to The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Air Supply, LMFAO, The Foo Fighters, REM, Barry Manilow, Dr. Dre, Snoop, Duran Duran, Weezer, The Flaming Lips, U2, Boyz to Men, Pearl Jam, Peter Gabriel, Queen, Color Me Badd, and The Beach Boys.
