Where Moonrise meets Sunset

There is only one way to have the sun and moon in a single image and this is keeping one of them in the frame while observing the effects of the other. This is what happens in this image, in which the Moon rises almost full over a snowy mountain. The reflective properties of snow white are added to the transmission of light. When the Sun is low on the horizon there is a greater distance to cross from the atmosphere to a given point. The longer wavelengths (red tones) are the ones that elude the greatest number of particles in the atmosphere and, therefore, achieve to affect the landscape, dying it with warm tones
