The Howling

December 14


I was captivated by the moon as I left the office yesterday evening.
The thin clouds added an atmosphere that was interesting and erie.
I searched for trees to add an earthly connection, but none looked
quite right. I finally found a cluster of dried seed heads on some
Sedum and took two exposures to combine for a cleaner silhouette.

Another David Clunas inspiration...

other sizes: small medium large original

Wonderful and haunting!!! I like the use of the sedum for the foreground seems just the right touch.--Rene

As a general rule I am not a fan of composite shots but I really like this one. It really sticks with you.

"I seen it!...I seen it! It sometimes comes out on the night of the full "Scotts Moon"!! It was big, and hairy, and smelled real bad!...It... was...The Swamp Thang!!"
Dan Chusid15-Dec-2005 02:03
I feel the urge to suddenly howl...

Great shot. I can already hear the wolves coming. Well done.
cliffwright14-Dec-2005 22:13
Very nice end result! I like the size of the moon in this shot and the clarity of the detail in the moon ... Well done! :)

A tremendously moody image! Great job on the processing! V.
Coleen Perilloux Landry14-Dec-2005 21:16
Very lovely image. I tried to get the moon last night with the huge ring around it but failed.
Guest 14-Dec-2005 21:15
The Howling... very dodgy werewolf film from the 80's? I remember being scared witless!
The black, almost molten looking undergrowth and that eerie grey sky make for a perfect setting for this title. Well done :)
Naomi Sheaffer14-Dec-2005 20:40
I photographed the moon last night, too, but mine looks very different.
This is lovely, indeed.
Tom Darby14-Dec-2005 20:32
Nicely done Scott, I'd not have figured out the tree silhouettes were in fact sedum!
Focus14-Dec-2005 20:21
WOW........this is beautiful!!!
Sharon Rogers14-Dec-2005 20:06
ooooo yes, love the atmosphere!! v>
jypsee14-Dec-2005 20:04
Excellent work; creative and clever.
faye white14-Dec-2005 19:49
excellent - the howling indeed! the brief touch of color at the horizon is perfect to draw the eye through the image.
Johnny JAG14-Dec-2005 19:47
Great shot
David Clunas14-Dec-2005 19:46
This is great! Wonderful atmosphere, I especially like the earthy tone just above the silhouette -v-

Makes a very pleasing picture, nicely done.
Steve England14-Dec-2005 18:55
Amazing thats Sedum..looks like a wood of oak tree tops!
A haunting,daunting yet warming image because of the light glow from a nearby town maybe.
An image worthy of getting your knees dirty to capture it! :)
David Royall14-Dec-2005 18:41
I am 85% happy with my camera, but if I were to get a new one it would be to attempt shots like this.
This is very nice.
