Day Moon through Branch
Day Moon through Branch - December 20, 2007

This is actually two exposures combined. When I focused on the either the branch or the moon, the other was out-of-focus. You can see the blurry branch in the photograph, which actually adds depth to the image. Combining the two, as an overlay, also made the sky richer in color.

This is one of the first shots I made with Nikon D300 using the 70-300mm lens. I also photographed the beginning of the total lunar eclipse on February 20, 2008. I have a slideshow of it on my website.
