Moody blues and moonbeams


                             Tonight in Ramsey


I didn't intend to do any photography today, but quickly grabbed the cameras and headed for the beach when I spied the moon over the beach. Very clear night with the moon fortunately above the layer of clouds. Usually obscured by them. Unfortunately, as this was a spur of the moment decision I left without a tripod and preferred lens. A hand held shot in fading light of the moon. Next time, tripod, remote and a warmer coat. Due to no light pollution over the horizon, or little in out small town the colours remain truer, so the intense blue of the evening sky and sea remain without that awful orange urban glow.

Your photo is brilliant. This colour blue is amazing and fortunately you discovered this in time.
You wrote that you have your own currency on your island. Scotland has also its own currency, which cannot be used in England.
Have a great week.

It looks very peaceful. Again you capture the blues perfectly. It looks like a great place to bundle up and just drift off to sleep.

Hi Reader Wil, Scotland, yes it does have its own currency too, but in can be used both in other parts of the UK, and here on the Isle of Man. However we ca;t reciprocate and use our money there or UK. Confusing I know.

The blues are intense and next time I shall use a tripod to get a closer moon view in detail.

Gorgeous moon image Jane, the medley of blues is perfect. I had an attempt at the blood moon eclipse tonight, not easy.

Gorgeous shot! I've seen so many orange sunsets, I've forgotten about the stillness of blue.
