Yes, this is a photograph. And no, there has been no photoshopping. This image was taken with a 30-second exposure at 3am using a Zeiss 135mm f2 lens mounted on a Canon 1DX. The camera remained stationary for the first 20 seconds of the exposure, and then panned right very slowly and steadily for the remaining 10 seconds to “draw” the tail of the moon. The moon was an enormous, beautiful crescent this night, and it was completely by chance that I couldn’t sleep and happened to notice it out the window. Incredibly rare opportunity, and this image has a prized place in my collection from now on. Make a wish upon the moon for the New Year!
