LA Night

LA Night

thanks again to adrian bellani, who took the time out to drive me around town. this was my second attempt at photographing the los angeles skyline from the griffith observatory grounds. we tried a couple of nights earlier but the entire landscape was fogged out. on this night… success – and a full moon to boot!!

in keeping with the previous lunar post, here is a series of moon shots from the diego martin valley in trinidad and tobago once again. i set up in the driveway, at the front of the house and waited for the moon to make its appearance, silhouetting the trees on the mountain. unlike the previous post, these images did not require too much editing – pretty well straight out of the camera.

moon over the valley

Moon Over The Valley - Diego martin, Trinidad and Tobago

a captivating moon is always fun to photograph and i have done so many times over the years. this one however is special… this scene was photographed on one of our first nights in trinidad.  i had not gotten used to my surroundings yet, but I was indeed aware that we lived in the diego martin valley just north west of the capital city, port-of-spain.

we are fortunate that our door and front windows lend views to some pretty imposing mountains. on this night, a full moon with wafting clouds lends a mystical, magical and perhaps even eerie feel to our view.

a fair amount of editing was needed to pull this one off. some will call it trickery; i much prefer artistic license…
