This is a composite of two shots -- an image of the moon, and an overexposed photograph of the surrounding starfied layered behind it. I agree that it does make for a strange (but beautiful) sight. =)

Ah, my preference for that one is "Rockin' Down The Highway". It is quite likely you'll see my bare left foot out the rolled down window doing that tapping the air motion thing. Okay okay, maybe that was a few years ago, but you never know when I just might feel that young again. ;)

Simply stunning. I not only give this a 10, I will use it for a background. Keep up the great work.
