The moon is one of the most captivating subjects for most photographers. There are things that can only be perceived through a lens.

To be able to see with high definition what our naked eyes can’t see, always generates this sense of awe and bewilderment. It is by extrapolating our senses that we can understand better.

To bring out the shades and textures that the moon offers has been one of my most pleasurable experiences. This timelapse was taken on my rooftop in Mesa, AZ on a late December night. The sun had just set and the sky had tones of violet and purple blending with the blue.

The resulting stacked image is shown below.
