Searching for Moonlight




Yesterday's moon rose upon a dusky sunset, wonderful shades of pink and blue mingling together. 




Tonight I returned to the bridge with plans to wait for a shimmering moonrise over the water. Miss E was my little sunshine to chatter throughout my walk. But the moon was later than predicted and as the cool river breeze strengthened and all daylight disappeared, we knew we had to head for the safety of home.

We stopped along the way, waiting and hoping for moonlight, only to find streetlights with a stream of bats in the far distance.




A car far away looked like a bright sun on the horizon.




One last look and I caught the shimmer I had sought but the moon and I were kept apart by private property. Never mind. My little chattering sunshine and I headed quickly home, a little disappointed yet pleased we had walked together.

That was the most important part of the shoot, your daughter and spending time with each other. She will remember this time throughout her life.

Great shot of the moon through the trees casting its light on the water. Do you have pictures of bats close up? I do love bats, they eat bugs…

Księżyc na niebie jest śliczny. Zdjęcia z nie prawdziwymi księżycami są świetne. Nie zawsze się wszystko ma , co by się chciało, ale t nie jest problemem. Pozdrawiam.
The moon in the sky is beautiful. Photos with no real moons are great. Not everything is always what would have wanted, but t is not a problem. Yours.

What a sweet adventure for you both. :)

My son called us outside last night to see the orange moon over Melbourne. Lots of oohing and ahhing was heard from us all. Such a sight... who could tire of looking at the moon in all it's splendour?

Blessings,
Dotti

Awww, Miss E sounds like wonderful company. The gradation of blue to pink then blue is so unusual. And pretty!

I love the moonlight too, but I find getting the setting right a challenge. A good cold weather thing to google!

I REALLY like those first two shots, and the description of your 'chattering sunshine' - I've had one accompany me full-time today too. Renee

I did not have the opportunity to visit your blog last week Karen. I've been just too busy.

I enjoyed reading and watching your posts though. You've posted again some beautiful work again! Looks like you had a great time with the kids ;-)

Hope you'll have a great week!

Nice to try some different pics with your camera. I like 2 and 3 the most. Thanks for showing.

Very nice shots Karen. Quite a challenge you had there. It was worth it, I'd say. I love the first photo, very rare sight and the mix of dusty rose and blue is overwhelming! Well done.
Looks like you and Miss E will be walking partners for many more walks :)
