“The Lesser Light”

© 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

Genesis 1:16 speaks of the moon as the “…lesser light to rule the night.” There was something primordial about the night sky last night, with a massive halo around the moon and some aurora mists. It was also incredibly cold (about -30 C), and the so I’ve tinted the image a polar blue to match. I wanted to test the new Sigma 16mm f/1.4 for astro, and while the bright moon somewhat dominated the sky (ruling the night!), I really liked the end result of the image. You can see more photos from it here:  | My “First Look” video is here:  | #photodujour #dustinabbott #photography #sigma #DN16mm
