LA BELLA LUNA

I was going through some of my old photographs and saw these moon series I did about five years ago. I was sitting on my balcony to enjoy the moon rise when I noticed that the bare branches of my neighbor’s dying Royal Poinciana tree were partially blocking the moon. It kinda created a beautiful yet eerie silhouette of the tree reminiscent of those old vampire movies. I started taking multiple shots and as always the moon comes out as a solid ball of light. I decided to process these photos by superimposing another photo I took of the moon with more visible details of its surface. The moon is such a beautiful and poetic object while at the same time can also be ominous and scary. With Halloween coming up in two weeks, I decided to post them to bring out the mood for the season. It’s just too bad that we won’t all be able to go trick or treating this year. Hopefully, next year…

WICKED

Wicked MoonThe South Florida night sky seems to be gearing up big time for Halloween. It’s been two nights this week that our skies were transformed into this hauntingly beautiful canvas. Tonight the moon looks like a ghostly vessel floating upon a mystical sea and all this photo need is the shadow of a woman zooming past the moon on a broomstick. That would be…Wicked!!!

HAUNTED SKY

Haunted Skies

Last night I noticed the moon was curtained by these altocumulus clouds creating an image of it floating in a sea of turbulent clouds. With Halloween coming up soon, I thought this would be a good photo subject to celebrate the festival. Spooky Halloween to all!!!
