The Angel of Peace, East Rock Park, New Haven, Connecticut

The Angel of Peace statue stands atop the Soldiers & Sailors Monument at the summit of East Rock Park in New Haven, Connecticut.

 

This first photo was taken just after sunset on July 28. It is the combination of separate exposures of the statue and the moon, which was much brighter at that time.

 

This second photo was taken just before sunset on Septermber 23, and it is one exposure.

 

Why not a full moon? A full moon would not be high enough at sunset.
