Moonrise

     
  Moonrise  
     
This simple composition captures a near-full moon rising over layers of color created by a setting sun. While this is not a complicated image to create, care must be taken to not overexpose the very bright moon. I used an exposure that made the brightest part of the moon nearly pure white (nearly blown). This exposure, timed right with the setting sun, gave me enough brightness in the sky to clearly show the color gradient.
