"And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush. And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush"
The above lyrics are from the song Moondance by Van Morrison. It ran through my head the other night as I walked around the lake, full moon up above. The sky was cloudy, but there were clear patches and every so often the moon would come into focus. Below are a few photos taken around the nearby park paths and pond. Please remember to click to enlarge the photos.
The fresh-fallen snow helped to reflect the light. This light source is a nearby lamp post. I just like this tree and photograph it fairly often. (please click to enlarge)
Moon and clouds worked together to tease and delight. (please click to enlarge)
High above the pond, the moon made a brief appearance before disappearing to await the approaching blue sky. (please click to enlarge)
As the wispy clouds threaded their way across the sky, the misty moon peeked through the branches of the trees below. (please click to enlarge)
A lovely golden orb balanced on delicate tree fingers. (please click to enlarge)
There were times I felt that I could reach out and touch it. (please click to enlarge)
Along the tree-lined path, I was interested in capturing the moon's light, but discovered that lights from the homes across the pond were perfectly lined up to appear at the left of each tree. (please click to enlarge)
As my walk neared to a finish, I paused to watch the geese swimming in the amber light of the lamp post. (please click to enlarge)
It was a marvelous night for a moondance.
