This is a very very rare shot to get out on the Washington Coast. It required being present during the early phases of a near lunar eclipse. When the eclipse is close, the color turns to an intense orange, which was also aided by the low position of the moon in the horizon. I was able to predict that the moon would be shining through this small crack in the rock during this time. All I needed was for a chance in a hundred that I would get a clear night in December!

Everything aligned and I got a rare photograph, that I was not expecting to actually happen.

Thanks for looking!
