Shadow Shots: Moon Shadows

Moon Shadows 3

Tuesday's full moon inspired my first effort at photography using only moonlight. It was a glowing night, filled with strange, pale light and long, deep shadows. It was a perfectly magical experience but, like magic, it was impossible to capture.

So very lovely. I know what you mean by not ever being able to really capture what you feel, but you have done a wonderful job here.

It's gorgeous, and I love seeing the stars through the tall bare trees.
