The full moon rising among clouds during twilight.

One situation I continue trying to reproduce in photograph as seen in real life, trying to perfect the technique, is full moons that rise among cloud with foreground objects. It's a rather challenging situation with the combination of brightness variance and how the human brain actually perceives (and alters) what in reality is seen. These situations usually have quite a mood about them but conveying that in photographs I find particularly challenging.

Trawling through some folders of 2018 photographs I came across the files from this night. The result is perhaps one of my better attempts at replicating this kind of situation in a life-like way, even if it doesn't capture the mood aspect of the moment.
