The moon shrouded in haze shines through with a blue-ish aura, surrounded in fiery clouds of fire. Is it the beginning or end of time?
This photo was taken with a Canon EOS 50D (f 5.6, s 1/30, iso 1300, fl 300mm) on a hazy evening with the full moon rising. A cloud cover was quickly descending.
The photo was specifically taken on a cloudy night rather than a clear night. It was enhanced with Aperture, and then Photomatix was used to not only enhance but provide the dramatic coloring and depth to the shadows of the clouds and haze encircling the moon.
Here is the original image…
The resulting effect is both dramatic and surrealistic in nature.
