Shahdag Moonset

Shahdag Moonset - Azerbaijan

The almost full moon sets over a snowy Shahdag at sunrise, conditions were perfect, a smattering of clouds brings beautiful texture to the sky and the mountain glowed in the first light. I was reminded of Ansel Adams Moonrise over Hernandez, and opted for black and white, a strange choice for a sunrise but the texture and detail of the scene works best in mono.
