The magic of a moon lit night

Perfect conditions for a quiet night of moon watching


Calm and Peace on Christmas Eve

In awe, I watched the waxing moon ride across the zenith of the heavens like an ambered chariot towards the ebony void of infinite space wherein the tethered belts of Jupiter and Mars hang, for ever festooned in their orbital majesty. And as I looked at all this I thought… I must put a roof on this toilet.

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is Ambience.

How has the moon affected the ambience of a memorable occasion for you? Did you know that ambience can also be spelled ambiance?

  1. When I was a kid, I dragged my bed next the window and put my pillow on the windowsill so that I could fall asleep looking at the moon. Now I have your gorgeous pictures to look at on a sleepless night- thank you 🙂


    • Glad you enjoyed them. Isn’t it fun when the moon is so bright that it lights up your room!?
      I’m very fortunate to have both a camera that can take moon photos, and windows that often frame the moon!
