Moon and Sun in One Photograph

Sun and Moon in One Photograph - [Small] At the sunset time in Matheran, I was able to photograph this amazing thing. Look closely, the Moon and the Sun are both showing their beauty and uniqueness in one scene. For those who wish to enjoy this photograph in detail, please scroll down; I have put in a larger image, which you can keep on scrolling until you reach the sun :)

Matheran is a very beautiful place. Me and my wife were there for 2 days last month. We knew that the sunset point is a beautiful place and you get to see one of the most beautiful sunsets on the planet, standing 800 meters (2625 feet) above the sea level with giant mountains all around. We reached there just 10 minutes before the sunset time. We were not just lucky to see that sunset, but luckier because we were able to see the moon with sunset.

Enjoy the large size scrolling photograph below.

  2. The enlarged photo is really stunning as you scroll down towards the sun.

    I see you mention western and indian music combinations on your profiles - do you know about the Scottish Chamber Orchestra tour of India in February, featuring Amjad Ali Khan in a specially composed piece for sarod and orchestra?

  6. That is a very interesting photo. It's not often you can get a photo of the moon and the sun together.

  11. Hi Bhavesh,

    I have another blog called Certain Kind of Woman..hope you would take a bit of time to read me there too..No hurry :)

  13. Indrani and Devika, you both are right; it's a vertical panorama.

    Nice to know you both were classmates, now perhaps, blogmates. I just invented a new word.

    Don't worry Devika, I am sure I am going to store this for life time. And, I will surely visit your Certain Kind of Woman blog.

  17. What a great way to show this! I'm glad you got there for the sunset! Whenever the sun and moon are out in the sky together, I always wonder what the rest of the world is seeing...total darkness??? This would be wonderful for Skywatch!

  18. You are so right! Amazing and what I think is especially amazing is your big size photo! How many centimeters (inches) long?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow this is the longest photo on the blog I have seen, nice that you were able to caputure it. You know I have once seen on the horizon, one side was sun and 180 degrees later there was a moon. And how do you take a picture of that, lol? Anna :)

  23. No any worry, as there is no any hurry, my dear Chhatbar :)

    I just wanted you to know a complete picture...than a train shot at one of my blogs -- which is not taken by me :)

    And after all blogmates -- as you say have to coexist...But unfortunately seems like all class mates cannot be blogmates.

    Reason -- you would know the rules of the blogworld...i was a bit late in knowing that!

  24. Thank you Peter for your good words.

    The original photograph that I have with me (much larger than the one I have posted) can be printed 42 inches (106 centimeters) high with acceptable resolution (200 DPI). If needs to be printed wither better sharpness (300 DPI), it can be printed as high as 28 inches (71 centimeters).

  25. Hello Anna,

    Thank you for the appreciation.

    The situation given by you can be captured in 2 ways…
    • using a fish-eye lens
    • using panoramic photography

    Hope this helps :) I would love to see the photograph that you will capture whenever in the future you get the same situation :)
