As the earth's shadow recedes, the sky is transformed from cool to warm. An earlier image rescanned and reinterpreted. The sky is lighter while more detail is preserved in the moon. I cloned out distracting points of light on the dark landscape. Tripod-mounted Nikon N65 with Nikkor ED 70-300mm lens. Two images stitched for the panorama. New 24-bit scans performed with Epson 4870 and imported into Photoshop.
