Moon Light Delight
Leonard Cohen wrote and sang that it was cracks through which the light got it.
The bright moon between the pines demonstrate also that in the darkness even a dim light can be bright. Moral: surround yourself by bright people, who inspire you to be even brighter yet; same for wise, kind, compassionate, empathetic and caring people. It helps also to surround yourself, not exclusively by people recovering, also from addictions, for in that struggle to stay alive they identify the essentials of life: air, water, food, clothing, shelter, meaningful labour, and love (given and received, unconditionally!)
In this darkness I experienced the joy and struggles of getting the technology to do what I intended: I was pushing the capabilities of the camera and getting also mixed results between the ones that are reasonably okay.
Enjoy the dark and the second light:
The moon, the second light, the light of the dark hours, but only for part of each month.
It’s like second chances: it’s not quite like the first light/chance; but when it works out, the beauty/joy is amazing.
Turning just a bit and waiting and shooting again sometimes nets another, if not better, also beautiful, worth contemplating photo.
The perspective one takes changes the outcome, dramatically.
In the end, the view is just marvelous, and hauntingly so.
