…photographs by an American living in Ireland

Full moon over Galway Bay


The "super moon" is meant to rise tonight, but last night (18 March) the sky was bright and clear, and one must make hay whilst the moon shines! I'm glad I had my camera; today is cloudy and I don't think I'll get a clean shot at the moon tonight. After I got this shot in town, I went to a secluded beach on the outskirts and watched and listened. I had forgotten the headplate for my tripod, so I couldn't get any photographs (this photo represents a 24 second exposure) but in a way it was a gift. There is nothing as magical as listening to ocean waves under a big, bright moon. Sometimes I get so absorbed in taking the picture that I lose the moment. As long as it isn't raining, I think I'll go back again tonight. And this time I'll go prepared.

  2. And it was cloudy here (NCR,India) also for a while, but then the sky cleared and we could take some shots. I felt the moon has looked bigger on many other occasions.

    And I agree, sometimes we are so busy clicking we forget to enjoy the view.
