At sunset the western sky was filled with clouds and I was standing under the apple tree having set up the same sculpture from the night before. It was windy too.
The sky was grey and dull and apparently the sun went down because it started to get darker... but no sign of the moon. But I remained hopeful. I kept feeling like a shift was happening and all I needed to do was remain open and be ready.
The sculpture was in place. The camera battery was fully charged. I was warmly dressed... and wanting very much to see the moon... and slowly, slowly the clouds thinned and within a few minutes this breathtaking moment was revealed.
I hope you had a chance to see this too.
Due to many requests, I will be making this image available shortly as a digital giclee print. I will announce here when I have it set up so you can order online. The publisher I use makes beautiful, velvety prints... the quality matches the image. Stay tuned. :-) And thank you to everyone for all your kind comments!
