This was taken at midnight, during a brilliant full moon that made rings in the sky! The lighter part of the shot is the moon radiating off the clouds! I love the peaceful nature of this shot. Maybe it will spread to the forum pages?
I processed the picture in Tungsten. Happy Friday!

Hi Linda,

Superb midnight shot with mystic feelings. Fullmoon did have a great infuence in bringing such interesting shades in the sky. The role of clouds in making this picture mystic is just beyond imagination. The lights in the north side of the picture bring life the picture. Thanks for sharing!

Have a nice weekend.

Hi Linda,

Smooth blue...

Love the stars in an attempt to prtrude the eery veil of clouds.



Ciao Linda, neighbour for ever:), fascinating all blue composition with fantastic sky, wonderful little light in BG, brava, ciao Silvio

Hi Linder,
Are you in one of your "BLUE TONE" modes today? I LOVE THIS ! The lighting on the shoreline is bright- the cloud contrast created by the moon is excellent. Really nice image. TFS and have a great weekend, Julie

Hi Warrier, How could I NOT like this being that blue is my favorite color. Very neat lighting. I like the sparkles of light on the horizon too. This photo really grabbed my attention. I like the dark silhouettes of the trees kind of breaking up the sky and water. Neat effect Linda! PEACE, Lisa

P.S. I've started a blue theme!

Hi Linda (aka Warrior),

This is really a cool blue shot. I like the reflections of the distant lights on the water. The lighting on the clouds turned out well too.

Best regards,

Hi Linda,
A refreshing blue mood for this hot day! (30 degrees celcius here)!
The blue nuances of clouds are astonishing! And the lights at the horizon give a great sense of space at the sky.
A very moody photo! Have a great weekend, dear friend and take care with your training!
