Lunar X During Corona

On the night this image was shot, there was a thick layer of clouds between my camera and the moon, producing a beautiful lunar corona. While this was not an ideal time for shooting this particular event, through the use of a long exposure and long effective focal length, I was able to capture a lot of detail.
