In the process of moving from Oregon to Washington, I passed this one relatively low hill with a lone tree upon it. Most of the time I passed it the sun was right overhead and the sky was washed out. On August 28th 2007 there was a lunar eclipse. I purposely decided to travel back late that night so I could capture the light of the full moon just over the hill lighting the lone tree (just before the eclipse). The goal wasn’t to get the details of the moon but capture the lone tree and its majestic beauty on the hill. This 15 second exposure is what I got from that shot. 70mm @ f 3.5, 15 seconds, ISO 100 Nikon D200 w 28-70mm 2.8
