In landscape photos lit by the sun, we seldom photograph the sun. It is too bright for most photography and actually a boring subject. It is the effect of the sun, not the sun itself, that makes the magic.
The moon is a bit different because it is much less bright, has some visual detail, and can be an interesting subject in itself. So when we shoot the moon, we often want the moon itself to be a main subject of the shot. This photograph, “Zion Moon,” takes a different direction. The silhouette of cliffs in Zion National Park, and the movement of the moonlit clouds during the long exposure provide the visual drama. It is much more like a daytime landscape than a night shot.
