Last of the Light

A month ago I was chasing the moon and went up to Lizard Head Pass to see where the moon would be rising.  As a waited, this scene just happened right in front of me and I couldn't resist.  It was a good thing too, because where the moon came up wasn't good looking anyway.

Moonlit Clouds

I have been chasing the moon this last two months and especially the moon behind clouds.  I awoke early one morning hoping to catch such a scene and was rewarded with this.  This is "en plain air", which is done on site as it is happening, which is why it is a little rough.  As you may imagine it is a little hard seeing the artwork and looking at a bright moon.  I use a headlamp and make sure it doesn't shine directly on the canvas, as that blinds you as well.  This will be used for a larger work soon.
