"High Moon" at the Beach

At first sight little. Unless both photos are combined to form a small but fine digital piece of art.
The picture "High Moon at Good Harbor Beach" is composed out of photographs of my two "places of residence": Rockport (MA) and Salzburg.

I took the photo of Good Harbor Beach near Rockport (MA) already in 2006. Until October 2019 it enjoyed a lonely existence on an external hard drive. Only then, in combination with another photo, it has reached its true purpose.

The image of the orange-red full moon was taken on a particularly important astronomical night. At night of July 27th, 2018 the longest lunar eclipse of the century could be observed - and photographed - over Salzburg.

If you think that this was already the highlight of this night - you are wrong. Because Mars was also particularly well visible.


Precisely this constellation of luminaries exists on average only every 105,000 years!

The picture is a photo collage from 2 photos. It shows a night scene with a threateningly large moon over Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester Massachusetts.

In this way, new pieces of photographic art are created repeatedly - sometimes years after I took the photos.
As the saying goes: "Good things take time"
