The Luminous Moon


This is a photo I've taken of the moon using my Pentax on a tripod. The place where it happened were the countryside of Gaperud, Värmland - the ambience can be quite magical there. Something I am reminded of when no clouds are covering the stars, is the stark contrast between how this natural light can appear so differently compared to the city. Partially thanks to the lack of artificial light the situation is always more luminous and enchanting. Needless to say the trees appear very different then during the day. I am very happy how this image turned out, and I might add that the photo itself involved zero post processing.

Very atmospheric. It looks like something from an old classic vampire movie.

One.

Felicia: Thanks a bunch.

Moanerplicity: I wasn't thinking in those terms when I did this shot, but when you say this - I see your perspective. Thanks for stopping by.
