Great catch! The buildings in the foreground make the Moon seem huge.

I agree the clouds add interest. They nearly foiled the whole thing, though. As we drove out to the site, I noted that while the forecast was for 20% cloud cover, it seemed to be concentrated in the southwest. I thought at the time that either it would ruin things completely, or it would make the shot nicer.

Unfortunately, I got a bit of motion blur in the photo. I think I like the video better.

Very nice composition. The clouds above the moon adds interest.
