POTD: Minimalist Moon

Minimalist Moon
Tubac, Arizona

This a shot of last February’s full moon, called Snow Moon (although that title seems misplaced if you’re viewing it in the Arizona desert). This is not the kind of image that translates well into the 8 bit RGB world of the internet. (Don’t worry if you don’t know what that means, there won’t be a quiz.) In fact, depending on the quality and brightness of your screen, you may not even be able to make out the mountain range in the bottom of the image, and the image may come across as having severe posterization. (Again, don’t worry if you don’t know what that means.) But I posted it anyway as even in a poorly reproduced state, it certainly gets across the minimalist composition idea.
