There are many elements coming together serendipitously in this image. You may notice the left side of the tree is bathed in a beautiful even light, which was from the full moon, before it was eclipsed to reveal the glory of the cosmos in the ensuing hours of darkness. The light on the right side of the tree is from a hurricane lantern I had placed there. The entire process took about five hours to capture, and it felt like an act of cosmic communion, where the dance of the moon and stars played out above an ancient baobab tree, deep in the wilds of the Okavango Delta.
