Moonstruck

You know how sometimes you're walking along at night and look up at the moon and are just staggered by how spectacularly gorgeous it is, so you try to take some photos and then are disappointed because the pictures failed to capture that elusive magical quality that drew you in?

That was not the case with these.


I cropped the photos a little to take out some of the black sky around where the clouds were breaking, but otherwise they're untouched.

Those are beautiful photos!! I'm a photographer and have never captured clouds in the night to my satisfaction! Gorgeous.

I was noticing the moon in a different way the last few nights. It was beaming into my apartment with unusual intensity. My grandmother used to tell me bedtime stories where my sister and I used to go out on adventures by walking up and out of our room on the moonbeam.
