I had been seeing this gorgeous agave bloom every morning on my dog walks thinking that I should take a picture of it. Finally, one morning I took my camera along and got it with a full moon behind it. Lo and behold, that day we had a huge wind storm and the agave blossom was blown down. Perfect timing. The original moon in the photograph was replaced with another photograph of a perfect full moon. Photographed with a Panasonic DMC-FZ50.

    I like what you have done here. Was that really a moon there ? Great work.

  • There actually was a full moon in the original photo, but it wasn’t big enough, so I added the large one for greater impact. It was my first created photograph.
