Moonset over Santa Elena
Moonset Over Santa Elena artwork

Big Bend National Park, Texas.

Big Bend National Park is one of a handful of locations in Texas that offers monumental terrain. I wanted to show just how extraordinary this place is with Moonset over Santa Elena. I had been tracking the times for moonrise and moonset all week, and I was finally in a location where I could take advantage of that knowledge.

Abbie and I had just arrived at Santa Elena Canyon and the moon was fast approaching the edge of the massive walls of rock. I used a telephoto lens to compress the canyon walls, which were showing great texture from the hard sunlight, against the moon that seemed like it was being caressed by the whispy, soft cirrus clouds, even though they are almost a quarter of a million miles away. The three layers of radically different textures combine to make an almost abstract arrangement that is very unique and can make a great conversational piece.
