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

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.

    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.
