Manarola Moonrise - (Italy)

Bored? Killing time at work? Here's the way I see it:


By liking the Blame The Monkey Facebook Page or following me on Twitter, I'm helping you, help me, help you, by helping (us) waste a few more pesky seconds at work before the end of the damn day.

Sunset + Moonrise = Visual Orgasm.


To answer the most obvious answer about this shot, yes, that’s the real moon. I didn’t photoshop that bad boy in. -- No, seriously, I didn’t. -- I also had no idea the moon would rise right there. That was 100% pure & simple luck. (Thank you universe)


This cool little Italian town in part of the 5 villages that make up the region called Cinque Terre. As you can see, Manarola is one of the most photogenic ones with easy access to many vistas and vantage points.


I spent an entire week shooting in Cinque Terre, concentrating specifically on sunsets and blue hour. It was a perfect project for me because I didn’t have to wake up early at all; not even once. Sunsets happen at a much MUCH more reasonable time than Sunrises.


Curious how this photo was created? Read the Technical Mumbo Jumbo.
