I loved this old dead tree on a mesa in Capitol Reef National Park, Utah, and this day the moon shown brightly in a cobalt sky. I decided to incorporate the two to have the expressive gesture of the tree reaching for something. To keep the moon sharp as well as the close-in view of the tree, though, I determined that f/16 was not going to give me enough depth of field. I created a focus stack of 3 images to get both the entire tree and the moon sharp.
