Day 10 – Moonlighting

moon through trees

I woke up early this morning and went to have a wee. As I was sitting on the toilet I happened to peek out underneath the blind and I was greeted with a vision of the most perfect eerie moon. I couldn’t help myself I had to try and photograph it. So I slipped downstairs grabbed my camera and headed straight back to the bathroom. Do you know just how quickly the moon moves across the night sky? As quickly as I got it in focus it was slipping behind the branches of the tree. In the end I found myself balancing on the edge of the bath to capture this. All it needs is an owl in the tree don’t you think?

“And in between the moon and you
The angels get a better view
Of the crumbling difference between wrong and right.”

Ps… I have entered this shot into the ‘Click It Up A Notch’ January competition.
