The winning image in our "Junk" photo contest

Thank you all for your comments, nominations and votes. Some are funny; some are very flattering. Special thanks to Marc H. for his long analysis.
I took this photo during an extraordinary journey in Namibia. This place is called "SOLITAIRE". There is only one lodge, one restaurant and one gas station.
My intention when I started this series of pictures was to shoot the Milky Way with a special foreground (the car). But the moon and some clouds were also present.
After the first shot I realized that the clouds formed some sort of a gloomy bird. My bad luck, moon + clouds, became a chance for a special photo. Even the flare and the halo "round off" the movement of the "cloud bird."
