If nothing else, people are impressed by nights in Wyoming.  The view of the stars is impressive, and that is magnified in the winter.  The stars seem even brighter and the moon … magnificent!  Last week gave us the lunar eclipse and I just had to go play with my camera.  Above is the fully eclipsed moon next to a boxelder tree which I “painted” with a spotlight.  The tree has never dropped all its “helicopter” seeds and was an easy tree to capture with a long exposure.  Flash would not light up the tree, but add a powerful spotlight, and, voila! a “painted” tree and color coordinated moon.
