The Pond-Moonlight

The Pond-Moonlight

The Pond-Moonlight is a pictorialist photograph by Edward Steichen taken in 1904 in Mamaroneck, New York.
The photograph features a forest across a pond, with part of the moon appearing over the horizon in a gap in the trees.
It is an early color photograph, predating the first widespread color photography technique (the 1907 autochrome), and was created by manually applying light-sensitive gums.
