I drove to our ski area during lunchbreak to take this shot as the moon was visible on an exeptionally clear sky. This time of year the sun is very low, even around noon.
Post processing:
3 layer masks: sky, shadow and sunny spot. Curves & levels for adjustment.
Dodge on the moon to make it shine a litle more.

Mjög skemmtileg mynd verð ég að segja. Blái liturinn og svo öldurnar í ladslaginu. Skil samt ekki hversu lágt hún skoraði.
