Golden Hour Moon

While I was trying to capture the sunset, I came across the moon and the beautiful clouds on the other side of the sky, and I did a 180° rotation of my “subject of shooting”.

This is not what is was looking like in the sky, the clouds were a bit away from the moon. I could have waited for another 10 minutes for the clouds to reach the moon but the clouds were moving too slowly and I wanted to capture the “golden hour’ scene, rather than the “blue hour”.

I took a total of 18 images in a span of less than 3 minutes between 5:45-5:48 PM IST, 15 for the moon and 3 for the clouds. Moon/cloud stack (individually) and moon/cloud blend was done in Photoshop followed by some tweaks in Adobe Camera Raw.
