The Moon Through my Window

Dramatic Moon

This hand held shot (it was a bit late at night to be messing with a tripod) was taken on my camera’s Black and White setting. Apart from a little cropping to remove a reflection of the kitchen lights, the first photo has no other editing done to it. The second one I cropped and lightened up a bit.

    I love these! The tree seems to have reached out it’s branches to try and capture the moon itself!

      It does look very much like that and it did when I saw it first hand. My picture does not really convey what I actually saw on the day…

  2. Excellent shot! I’d love to know how you did that, whenever I try to take shots of the moon they always come out looking very grey…

  3. Ghostly and quite eerie!

    • CherryPie says:

      It looked amazingly beautiful on the day, but the photographic reproduction makes the scene look eerie. How curious is that?!

    Nice. There is always something very atmospheric about the moon seen through branches.

    • CherryPie says:

      This particular tree provides the perfect foreground for both the moon and the sun. It provides some amazing photographic opportunities.

    Fantastic photos! A Wuthering Heights atmosphere. I hope Heathcliff does not knock at your door.

  6. Did you see the meteor?!

    Very nice! Would make a good book cover!

    Had not thought of trying a night time photo with black and white. Interesting picture.

    Ah, now that really is something – but better in winter.

  10. J’adore l’ambiance de ce cliché. Une photo terriblement et étrangement belle !!! ;-)
