Reaching for the moon

Reaching for the moon

It was a perfect summer's day, clear blue skies and warm, warm sunshine.
If anything is was almost too hot when, at the urging of the brother-in-law
down from Dublin for the weekend, we set off for a hike in Rockmarshall
Woods under the heat of the midday sun.
After what well might have been the annual bar-b-que, we walked down
to the shore as the light was fading, with the moon rising over the
in-coming tide.

A wonderful shot of that lovely time when the day's heat starts to dissipate. So peaceful.

Sounds like the perfect day. And a nice shot to close it off

Superb composition with the layered background and the silhouettes. Beautiful tones and light, and the moon is the icing on the cake. "V"

Unusual composition. I like the verticals. Well done.

Excellent image - somehow this seems to convey a feeling of yearning - very nice.

Love the silhouette...nothing like a sea breeze to cool things down!!

Even without the moon this would be a fine picture. With it it is fantastic. The like and color are marvelous.V

Wonderful silhouette pattern against layers of blue. The moon is a bonus. V
Doug Cruden23-May-2010 22:26
This is really good, Mairead - I like the contrast between the horizontals of the water and sky with the vertical lines of the bush; excellently composed with the moon scuttling among the topmost branches
Alan K23-May-2010 22:11
Excellent arrangement of the "lines" of the branches "grabbing" the moon. It's unfortunate that the moon is seldom as effective in a shot as it looked in real life (though the limited size of a web image contributes to that) but it's still a very appealing composition element. I also like the horizontal banding of the water, clouds and sky.

Wow, wonderful shot! I love all the shades of blue in this one. V
