MOONRISE AT MUNGO

Walls Of China, Mungo National Park, New South Wales, Australia

The full moon rises while the sun sets simultaneously at the ancient sandstone rock formations known as the Walls of China at Mungo National Park.

I have never seen the moon rise while the sun sets at the same time (or maybe I have never paid attention to it). The moon was shot with a telephoto at the same time the sun was setting, but it set further east than I had hoped, so I used a little photoshop to place it where I wanted it.

Thanks for the honesty about moving the moon. So few would admit to that. Knowing that doesn't make the picture any less beautiful.

wonderful textures and composition...I do the same with moon shots as a wide angle lens just makes the moon too miniature to truly reflect the scene...

(I'm new to DA so please check out my growing gallery...;))

Ha, I'm just kidding, I say if it was possible to produce using photographic techniques (multiple exposures on film, in this case) then it's fair game in the digital world.
