When the Moon Hits Your Eye
I really got into doing some night photography while I was down there, since my new camera could do fun things with shutter speed. This was a shot of the full moon (yes, that's the moon!) on a clear night during a power outage. The moon was so bright one didn't even need streetlights that night. I love the silhouette effect of the houses and trees, and the blazing white disc of the moon. It looks like the sun through a strong filter, but I promise you, this was taken at 9 pm at night.
