Halo around the moon

Halo around the moon, originally uploaded by andiwolfe.

My first night time exposure with my Canon EOS 7D. This is was a 20 s exposure, processed with Nik Software Photomatix plug-in, which enhanced the details in the capture. I really like the cloud streaks from the long exposure. The colors from the moonbow were gorgeous, too.

I chose the long exposure route to get the light painting effect of the colored light on the clouds. Steve was taking pics at the same time and aimed for getting the boiling cloud structure around the halo by doing a short exposure. You can see his version of this scene on his weblog. Check it out - it's really interesting to see the different interpretations of this event.

Hello Andi,
This is one of the most beautiful photos I have ever seen!
Steve is right when he says the photo he took is so much different; both are wonderful. It's almost difficult to believe they were taken at the same time from the same location.
Congratulations on achieving such a wonderful shot!
