Moon Rising

This is not meant to be a ‘lazy post’, I just couldn’t resist sharing this masterpiece by Australian Astrophotographer Mark GeeOf course we went there and hopefully one day we will return to this “loveless” place:

It’s hard to think that the earth is one –
This poor sad bearer of wars and disasters
Rolls-Roycing round the sun with its load of gangsters,
Attended only by the loveless moon.

From Stars and Planets – Norman MacCaig

    What an absolutely wonderful performance in film and photography. Just reading about it on Mark Gee’s link, his blog feed, I found out this shot just happened recently on the evening of the 28th January 2013. Thanks for posting because you just made my day!

      Isn’t it just – I wish I could create something even half as stunning.
