After the sun had gone down in the west, I was hiking back to my car when this apparition appeared in the eastern sky. I had no idea what it was, but I did know I wanted to record it. I unpacked my gear and got a shot of the sky from where I stood as I could not find anything nearby for an interesting foreground. After I sucessfully captured the sky, I quickly searched further to find something that I cold use as a foreground and put the two together. The moon was just icing on the cake for that magic moment.
