Sepp Hackhofer - Hidden moon


Usually I am more a spontaneous photographer who likes surprises, but sometimes I remember particular situations and I am tempted to repeat something after some years. So I walked up the mountain in moonlight, knowing the moon would be going down just before sunrise in a magical morning light. But soon I realized that there was a bank of clouds. That meant I probably would not even see the moon setting at the horizon. Never mind; the situation turned out to be fantastic, as the sun came out for a short moment, putting a red spot on the right place, just as the moon appeared in between the clouds for a moment. Once more I learned that repeating in nature is somewhat impossible. Even better!
