Moonlight

Moon, Fiji, 2016

Are these photos of moonlight, or photos of the moon? I suspect the latter, but I’ve included them in Becky’s “—light” challenge anyway! Does the moon look odd to you Northern Hemisphere dwellers? The photos were taken in Kakadu National Park, Australia (feature photo), Fiji and Sydney, so the moon’s orientation may not be what you’re used to.

This will be my last post for the January Light challenge, and once again huge thanks are due to our indefatigable host Becky. I don’t know how she manages these month-long challenges so many times a year.

Moon, Sydney, 2013

And a gallery of my square light photos, including a couple for which I couldn’t think of Xlight names so didn’t post:

Posted as part of January Squares, the theme for which is words ending in light.

    • I think we all came up with some interesting interpretations of the theme, and some new words!
      Apparently the moon view difference is due to this: “The whole Earth sees the same moon phase on the same day, but the Northern and Southern Hemispheres see the moon oriented differently with respect to the horizon. The moon itself shifts its orientation with respect to your horizon as it moves across your sky. Finally, your time zone makes a small difference in how you view the moon’s phase.” Oh that’s clear! https://bit.ly/2UcMpcq
