With the recent blood moon and in some parts of the world the lunar eclipse, I was in awe of the full moon last night. I had a bit of eclipse envy and decided to shoot-the-moon. Some time ago I used to have very steady hands and could get away with taking low light photos without much trouble, but now days I have a bit of a shake and I’ve decided to just go with it. So now when there is a clear sky and a bright moon I paint the moon. I hate to think how ridiculous I look while doing this but it’s loads of fun.
This is the moon reflected in the pool dancing across my lens.
A moody night landscape with the pool in the sky and reflected in the pool.
Fairy lights in the background and the moon crossing their path.
A close up of the moon in the night sky.
The moon and the houses across the river dancing in time.
The moon makes its way across the night sky.
Not sure why but when I look at this one I hear the lyrics “When you get caught between the moon and New York City” come to mind 🙂
Now I can’t get this song out of my head… not a bad thing.
Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)” by Christopher Cross (and others), which was the main theme for the 1981 film Arthur starring Dudley Moore and Liza Minnelli. I think I have to go back and watch this film again 🙂
