Remember the final sequences of 2001: A Space Odyssey? That's what I think of when I see this one. Most of the lighting for this shot was done with a large flashlight in red, gold, green and purple. The moon was obscured by the fast moving clouds you see in the distance. It did, however, back light the sky enough to produce this cool moving cloud effect. I had already packed up my tripod for the night by the time I decided to try this shot despite the absence of moonlight.
