Caltex Moon by ash Caltex Moon by ash
The Caltex oil refinery at Milnerton, Cape Town, South Africa, with a full moon peering through clouds overhead. Taken at about 2am on a whim on the way back from somewhere.

The wind was blowing a bit and the clouds were scudding along at quite a pace, I had to use a reasonably short exposure to stop them blurring completely.

Canon EOS 300
28mm
borrowed tripod
10 or 15 seconds
Fuji Provia 400

Damn this is cool, the greenish colour smudge. I almost wanna say that it's to bad the trees were in the way cause I would have liked to see more of the refinery but I think the trees make it look better cause it balances it out causing darkness at the bottom of the photo.
