Climbing on the moon - Postojna, Slovenia

Climbing on the moon - Postojna, Slovenia

by Cyril Mayaud, Karst Research Institute ZRC SAZU, Postojna, Slovenia

This picture shows the silhouette of two of my friends aligned with the moon in full climbing equipment, as they would be ready to ascend it. We planned this shot using an application able to predict the position of the moon depending on your own position. Logistically, it also implied to be at the place at 4 AM in the morning, and to be in permanent contact with our phones to make the nicest possible composition. I was standing at a distance of 800 m when I took this shot.
