Boom the moon

I will confess that the moon you see is superimposed.  The moon in this shot was way over exposed, so I borrowed one from another shot of mine. 

Still, the juxtaposing, you have to admit, brings up lots of antithesis -- the whisperless quiet of the moon; the fireworks booming through the smoking, sulphur-smelling sky.  The moon, peaceful, tranquil.  The firework, exploding, like the fireball of a supernova.   The steady, steely brightness of the moon.  The short-lived, damn-the-torpedoes life of the firework.

The firmament tolerates a variety of behaviors.
