Description

I had scouted the area during the day to find a good foreground subject against which to photograph a lunar eclipse. This particular hoodoo really stood out. I had the elevation and the direction to expect the lunar eclipse to occur, and selected my vantage point during the day. Having previously hiked to this area, I was able to find it again that night. I arrived well ahead of the eclipse to be completely prepared to capture the event, and set up my foreground gel lights. Just as the eclipse began, a rogue cloud came up and refracted the moonlight creating this interesting galaxy effect.
