I planned this shot during one of the many supermoons we had last year. I noted what time sunrise would occur and decided to capture the moonset during the colors of dawn. (Which was perfect, as there was a small break in the clouds during that time.) I intended to back far away from this barn and zoom in so that the moon would appear large next to the barn. Unfortunately, I backed right into a tall metal structure, and because the moon was quickly sinking into a sea of clouds, I had to improvise. I zoomed as much as a could to capture the landscape, took a second, magnified frame of the moon alone, and combined the images in post-processing. This is an image that would have been possible in camera (with a few differences), had my backside not met with a large metal building. Sometimes though, you just have to go with the next best thing.
