Dark Moon by ChrisAddams Dark Moon by ChrisAddams
I got stranded at work and had to walk home in the bitter cold (19 degrees F), several miles, the final half having no lights at all.

My way was lit only by the dim light of a freezing moon. When I looked up through the trees, I saw a photo waiting to happen.

Also, due to my tight schedule, I can't individually thank everyone that has checked out the photos, but seriously, to have the DD pop up on my birthday with everyone loving it; that rocked.

You guys are awesome.

If you like all that dark spooky stuff, check out my gallery. There's more doomy evil amazingness!

I only shoot manual. For this shot, I used a tripod and an image stablized lens.

All the settings are listed to the right of the picture. The slightly higher ISO really helped bring out the sky without blowing out the highlights on the moon much.

This is absolutely incredible! I love how there isn't any depth or color to the tree, only a blackened silhouette that somehow makes the glowing moon above seem more distant and yet more ominous.

*Adds to favorites*

Thanks for sharing!

Amazing, one of the best night pics I've seen in a while--also, I've got to love how it 'just happened' and wasn't pre-planned or heavily-edited in some way.
