Summer Nights and Full Moon

I'm going low key today with a single image, which I haven't done in a long time :) It's usually more extensive posts here. But since I'm preparing some bigger posts I wanted to go simple for a moment. Summer nights are always interesting to observe, especially when there is a full moon in the sky like it was yesterday night. In the shot above I let the clouds roll by for a good 20 seconds, and since it was windy it resulted in a blurry motion. The clouds hid the full moon, which illuminated them from behind.

Since the days are getting hotter here, so do the nights, but last night was a bit nicer. As I went to bed I could still look up at the sky and the full moon lit everything up so clearly. In those quiet moments falling asleep is such a easy and wonderful task...


  1. It's always an experiment worth a try. I usually end up with condensation all over the lens.

    1. This was more spontaneous then pre-planned. But the sky did turn out nicely.

  2. A bit spooky, Mersad, but a nice shot to set a mood.
    Thanks for sharing at

  3. A moody, but beautiful shot!

  4. That is a very dramatic sky. You are a master at night photography.

  5. there should be a witch on a broom in that sky, or a dark castle or a few ghosts. it is pretty....

  6. Blurry photo's can be gorgious, and you know how to make it right

    Have a nice ABC-W-day / - week

  7. Beautiful shot. A genuine "castle in the dark" shot! Well done.

  8. It sure captures the feel of a summer night. I'm hoping for one where you can actually sit outside without the oppressive heat.

  9. Absolutely a good choice for a one photo post. Hauntingly beautiful. :)

  10. snapshot of that post is looking so good. you captured a perfect photo.

  11. Hallo Mersad,
    der Vollmond war in den letzten Tagen gigantisch groß und schön.
    Ich bin vom Urlaub zurück und kehre langsam ins Bloggerleben auch zurück.
    Liebe Grüße

  12. I love a night sky lit by moonlight!

    Thank you for your comment on my blog. The hotel was not too expensive--they have deals on their web site, and we did not get a luxury room. It was just nice to be close to the theater and restaurant. Enjoy your visit to NYC and New England--many wonderful sights to see!
