Artist's Description

María Santísima de la Amargura in all her glory shines literally under a Andalucian waning gibbous moon on Viernes Santo. It’s been a long time since I actually woke to see her exit from the Iglesia de la O in downtown historic Rota, and I should’ve been surprised to see the huge church plaza packed to the gills with a huge crowd at 2am! Kids, families, friends and visitors; they were all there awaiting her grace to fall upon them. The candles were lit as she first appeared, a glorious sight from outside looking through the huge high main doors, but sadly the candle flames were soon extinguished as she entered the plaza and faced the winds. But what a sight! In this image, she has already been out of her church about an half hour, having been not carried but pushed out the main doors due to her height. She is just about to round a corner and change direction south when I saw the moon above her. By chance the gorgeous underside of her canopy is lit for a fraction of a second by someone’s camera flash and amazingly I snapped at the same time, and the flash illuminated the elaborate design! Image captured with a monopod-mounted camera Canon EOS 40D with EFS 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS lens
