The presence of weak dawn sunlight from the top of Cathedral Rock as the full moon set in the west over the township of Armidale. The duration of the twilight period between dawn and sunrise varies greatly depending on the latitude, so from this latitude I furnished with this gorgeous light which gave me plenty of time to scope out a composition before the sunrise light burst into the sky!
Note: The moon is a composite at 70mm and the landscape at 17mm. Shooting landscapes with the moon in frame is tricky because the moon only looks like a tiny spec in the sky, so compositing a shot at 70mm I was able to capture a more accurate scale of the moon with the landscape. I'm thinking of making the moon slightly smaller though, probably a 50mm composite instead of 70mm.
