Paint the Moon

By: Laurent Laveder


Region: Europe

Site: Brittany - France

Date: September 2007

A painter appears to draw the Earth's shadow on the Moon during the partial lunar eclipse of September 2007 in France. This innovative photo was difficult to capture because of the Moon's rapid motion as it set. The paint brush had to be held precisely by the "painter" and the photo had to be taken very quickly.
