Shot in August 2002, this image is a combination of two slides, both taken with the same gear and in nearly the same location. The Red-tailed Hawk was shot at 1/500th second in daylight, the moon at about 8 seconds. I shot the moon/clouds because of the unusual orange color. The color was not added in photoshop. The only post processing was to overlay the two pieces of film in one slide frame and scan it. Nothing else was done except dust removal.
