Taken the night of the full (harvest I think) moon from the James River Bridge in Buchanan. I was taking moon shots because the moon actually had rays of light streaming from behind the clouds - a truly spectacular display that I unfortunately wasn't able to capture as well as I'd hoped. I think that night shooting is one of the biggest limitations of my little camera. I wish this had come out crisper, but I really like the shot. I did use a flash and had additional lighting from lamp posts on the right side and behind me.

That being said...

Your pictures all provoke thought and mood which is essential if we want out work to 'speak'..
Thanks for the conversation :)

Nice picture. Love the moonlight on the railing and the clouds are spectacular. Just wish there wasn't so much black space.

I like the colors and how the moon peeks through the clouds. Wish the wall had been straight though.

I love the graphic sense of the railing. The blue tones are terrific. The clouds make the moon shot so interesting and not the typical one. The composition is good and the minimal light really works here!!

This is really lovely. Taking advantage of the full moons we've had lately I see. The way the moon is shown thru the clouds and casting the blue moonlight onto the wall is intense. 10.

I like the composition. I wish the moon and clouds were a bit crisper, but nice photo.
