Santa Elena moonset

I’ve taken several great shots of Santa Elena canyon in Big Bend National Park…. But this is the first time I’ve snapped a shot with the moon setting right into the canyon. 😉

moon, shadows and time

  1. Love that hulking shadow with the moon about to descend into it . . . .

  2. Good one. Very powerful. B/W was a great choice here.

  3. Wonderful capture and great idea to make it into a B&W.

  4. I have to agree with what everyone has been saying here… the b/w pulls out the textures so nicely… and (I’m guessing) gives a lot more ‘weight’ to that well-framed moon, too…

  5. beautiful composition….:-D
