Long Sunset, Forestville, California
 

 
When I began this exposure, there was just the barest hint of color visible on the horizon. When I closed the shutter ten minutes later, the sky was pitch black. On the film, all of this wondrous light had built up in the sky, and reflected in the waters of the Russian River, at River Bend, in Forestville, California. The moon on the left, was actually a thin crescent which had moved across the sky during the exposure, enlarging its apparent size. The movement of the cloud bank against the still silhouettes of the trees adds a somewhat surreal atmosphere to the scene.
