A Photo a Week Challenge: Light the Night

This is my contribution to Nancy’s A Photo a Week Challenge: Light the Night.

When I read the prompt a photo from late last year came to mind, a twilight street scene with a crescent moon in the sky. The moon in that photo made me think of some of my other photos featuring the moon so here’s a small selection.

January Squares: Oak Tree by Moonlight

This is my day 28 contribution to Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge.

One of the earliest photos I have used for the January Squares. It dates back to the mid 1970s and was part of a slide presentation that got me a place at art school.

It shows a full moon shining through a gap in the branches of an Oak tree in Hatherton, Cheshire, England.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Cosmically Circular/Cosmically Square!

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Cosmically Circular/Cosmically Square!

I considered this challenge for some time before deciding that my interpretation was going to be round things in the sky, cropped square. Simple.

A moon. Not the moon because we now know that there are other moons out there. Some with more dramatic names, Titan or Deimos, for example. Taken from the dock at Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario while waiting for the sun to rise.

A manmade circle in the sky. Wiarton Village Fair fireworks on the South Bruce Peninsula. Taken with a telephoto from a couple of miles away across the bay from the dock at Colpoy’s Bay. The same location as the moon photo.

A giant setting sun behind cloud. Taken with a telephoto lens at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan during autumn migration. The specks in the photo are distant wildfowl flying to roost.
