Thirteen color stills were shot in a meadow about 30 miles north of Prescott, AZ, with the full moon near the zenith on the night of August 24th.
I had been visiting a sheepherder near here.
Can you see his "sheepdog in training" puppy sitting on the road behind the van?

Equipment Used

Getting the colors to match in a pan made with 60 second exposures that must be run through post processing to be viewable, is driving me crazy. So we'll start this moonlight series off with a black & white version of my color pictures. This pan consists of 13 frames shot with a tripod mounted Panasonic DMC-ZS3 and assembled with Arcsoft Panorama 4. Before assembling into a pan the frames adjusted with "Essential HDR" Community edition software. When I can learn how to blend the edges of the original, relatively contrasty, color pictures I'll throw up the color version here.
