Blood Moon at Black Ridge Canyon

A total lunar eclipse on April 14, 2014. To overcome the limitations of camera technology, two consecutive exposures had to be made in order to correctly render all the elements in the scene: one to properly expose the moon and sky, and another to properly expose the red sandstone rock formations. The two exposures were then combined in post-processing to show the scene as it appeared.
