Wright says:  I captured this image around midnight when I noticed the full moon shining in through our bathroom skylight.  I was dazzled by the shadows and had to make myself grab my B&W camera.   When I realized my tripod was in my car, I used my towel rack to steady the camera instead.  I would have lost even more sleep had I not taken this photo (although I wondered if I should have just retrieved my tripod for the photo at the time).


Exit was awarded First Place in the Open Category of the 2022 PACC Annual Print Competition by juror Victoria Heilwell.
