Shy of the moon

There is something
That mesmerises me
In this picture



The rawness
Of the bareness
Of the trees

The moon
Shining
So brightly

The stars
Shy
Of the moon

The moon is so bright... it almost feels mystical!

Hauntingly lovely..is what comes to my mind..lost and lonely are the emotions it evokes..loved it.

Ariel said...

That is haunting, in a slightly macambre way. Like Steele, I'm wondering why the trees are so bright?

Ubermensch said...

my hunch more than one light source!

Queen Mo - Yes, it is mystical. That is what got my attention.

Free Spirit, Pincushion - Thanks. I think the loneliness is a strong emotion that comes out.

Garrison Steelle, Ariel, ubermensch - I guess a combination of overexposure and some background lighting (though not directly on the trees) makes it look illiminated. No flash though.

Pandora - Interesting perspective.

MMMM! Those tree branches like tangled lace or tentacles dancing or reaching into the night. So many images come to mind from one fantastic photo! (Of course, there's that moonlight, too ;)
