Time Warp

By paolodefaveri  
it had been bad weather for days, overcast and snowy. However the sky couldn't choose a better moment to start clearing off: the amazingly bright full moon night of mid of December. I knew that the full moon would have been special, as it was 8000 miles closer to Earth than how it usually is, and I was a bit frustrated therefore about the clouds. At 2AM I was ready for bed and just gave a quick look outside: I never went to sleep that night! I took this picture from a field beside home. I had noticed how fast the clouds were travelling in the sky and so I chose a composition with less ground and more sky. I knew the clouds would have drawn some beautiful stripes along their motion. What I had not expected was how beautifully the city lights of Turin (more than 20 miles away!) would have tinged the clouds with reds and purples.

Love that movement in the sky, against the static foreground.
