Twilight Moon

by on Aug.14, 2019, under Life, Photography

We stayed at a random rest area beside the highway heading north towards Katherine this evening

Luckily this nice bare tree was metres from the van. Given minimal clouds and a smallish crescent moon which should set within a few hours of sunset. The tree provided a half decent foreground interest for some further astro work

I setup a potential composition whilst it was still light and took the below twilight image just after sunset

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

Then when it was almost dark enough to shoot some star trails exposures. I took the following test shot after further refining my composition
