Quiet Thursdays – Moonlight in Banyule Flats
I took this shot a while back when I was photographing the moonlight in Banyule Flats. I love the way the light from the moon shows everything. I was also trying to get the stars. I thought maybe since I was in a valley that maybe I might be able to get the milky way, but there were too many lights from the city. Also being a full moon I didn’t like my chances. I might try again when there is a new moon.
I did play with this a little bit, trying to bring more out of the sky, not sure I succeeded much. It really isn’t a great photo, but it is a trial for something else. I think experimenting and trying things is so important, you just never know what might work. That is something about digital that I do love, that you can experiment and not have to worry about wasting film.
If the clouds weren’t there I suspect it would be a very boring image, so in this instance I am glad it was there.
I am leaving it there today, I have been out taking photos all day, so I am a bit tired now, I need to be quiet for a while.
