Some of the most spectacular “shining” comes from the moon. I have often tried to capture the full moon as it rises or sets. Night shots can be somewhat eerie, appropriate for Halloween!
Here are some of my efforts, for the
Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine.
Moon over Beau Drive, Des Plaines (February)
Full moon above a red maple tree – park district parking lot (October)
Full moon casts a glow on snow-covered fir tree. (February)
Full moon through tree, as seen from our deck (early March)
The light of the full moon filters through the canopy of leaves above our deck. (October)
Moon setting behind our neighbor’s house across the street (early March). I was amazed to see the moon going down one early morning, something I had not witnessed before.
Full moon rising (left of pillar) and artificial lights at an outdoor concert (September)
Street lights create some spooky effects, too.
Street light casts a glow on new fallen snow in front of our house. (late November)
Snowy evening: street light illuminates a snow-laden tree. (late November)
Note: All photos were taken with a Samsung Galaxy 4 or 5, in Des Plaines, Illinois, except the concert which took place at College of duPage, Glen Ellyn, Illinois.
