[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I finally visited a tropical island. I'd have to say I was most impressed by the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean, but in second place was the palm trees.
This sky was lit by a full moon.

Some info from wikipedia:
Palms are one of the most well-known and extensively cultivated plant families. They have had an important role to humans throughout much of history. Many common products and foods are derived from palms, and palms are also widely used in landscaping for their exotic appearance, making them one of the most economically important plants. In many historical cultures, palms were symbols for such ideas as victory, peace, and fertility. Today, palms remain a popular symbol for the tropics and vacations.

Good use of a 4-second exposure.
If you get another opportunity to do a similar shot, try placing the moon behind the tree such that it will shine through the leafs, then you can crop the image much tighter.
