Travel photo of the day: Moon rising over the Andes

Submitted by Matthew Gefroh / UGC

A sunset view south of Santa Cruz, Chile, captures a full moon rising above the Andes.

Matt Gefroh and his wife were on their way to Chile's wine region, driving from Pucón to Santa Cruz, when they stopped by the road to photograph vineyards in the setting sun. Then they spotted the full moon.

"As with most of the weather my wife and I experienced in Chile, the skies were clean and clear and seemed to stretch out forever," Gefroh told TODAY.com.

"This photo is a composition of two identical photos at different exposure levels," he said. "I knew it would be difficult to adequately capture the colors of the dusk sky along with the details of the bright moon so I snapped several photos and used PhotoShop to merge them together."
