This is the full moon rising over Balboa Park. The neon colors are from the seasonal flood lights pointed at the California tower and dome. This photo took a bit of planning and was nearly two years in the making as I waited for the right conditions. Moving a foot to the left or right and the opening in the trees wouldn't have aligned with the moon and buildings. I almost couldn't believe it when I saw the moon line up even though I knew it would happen due to the path of the moon and trigonometry. I felt so triumphant that I finally got the image I had been seeking.
Note: this is not a composite and the scene was captured in a single photograph.
