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.
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.
