Photographer's Note

This is a continuation of my series on Lake Elizabeth in Fremont, CA.

The landscape may look like a night photograph, but it was shot in the afternoon and converted to b+w to bring out the shapes. The moon was indeed in the frame - not added in PS. Speaking of which, it's incredibly easy to spot when the moon has been surreptitiously added: usually it's entirely out of scale, or, the lighting is incorrect.

I thought the large-format style aspect ratio would be particularly appropriate for this composition. Also, take a look at the original color version.

PS: the sky may not be perfect - there might be some banding artifacts...
