Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

Full Moon Reflections

Full Moon Reflections

I live on the Chesapeake Bay near Annapolis, Maryland.  It seems I just can’t get enough of the beauty here and in particular full moons and sunrises.  This week’s full moon was extraordinarily beautiful and large.

I took this shot using my iPhone camera.  Sometimes having an ordinary camera creates something extraordinary.  Like two moons!  The moonlight on the water appears like a path into the darkness between the horizon and the night sky, leading up to the moon.  What appears as a companion is actually the reflection of the moon in the glass of my window.  So this photo contains two reflections, a kind of trompe d’oeil.

I still couldn’t get enough of the moon so for a closer look I went to my telescope.  Here in

Full Moon Through the Telescope

the lens is reflected the moon and its halo against sheer black, brilliant and glowing in that darkness.  I find something so ethereal and mystical about this image.

For this week’s Photo Challenge: Reflections it just seemed right to submit the reflection of the full moon with it’s glow and twin.  Let me know what you think in the comments below.

  3. I love it. I am not a photographer myself, but in a previous work life, I spent time with some of the word’s best. I don’t know how this measures up technically, but it’s a 10 ( scale of 1-10) creatively, even if it was an accident.
