Full Moon Halo Over a First Quarter Moon

View Large On Black

 

Here's a scene fresh from tonight's blue hour. It's amazing to me how the strong halo around the moon seems to mask the fact that it is nowhere near a full moon.

 

Image Note: This is two exposures manually blended in PS, one for the foreground/snow to show up and one for the sky.
