On Sunday I finally went through some more photos I took on Bonaire. With the intention of putting a blog post together from A to Z for our Sisterhood Stories. You know leaving home, hitting the airport getting to Bonaire etc. So, I started processing a photo and then another and another one. And then I thought, wait a moment, these are all moon photos that I am processing here. What’s going on?
I guess it had to do with the fact that I could hardly take any photos during the daytime. Well, of course, I took some, but I could not be my usual self and stand for hours in the sun and shoot windsurfing photos. Or wave crashing photos. You know, the antibiotics I was still taking for lyme got to me and made me extremely sensitive to light. I got burnt really bad, despite the fact that I was using 100+ baby sunscreen. Not enough to fend off the sun so close to the equator. Thankfully the best wind for surfing was early in the morning and later in the afternoon i.e. times with less intense sun, which made it possible for me to still enjoy quite a bit of surfing. Just not so much photographing. Until… night time. o.k. not really, but it was a full moon while we were there – and it showed. Beautifully. There is just something about a moon over the ocean. Add a few clouds for atmosphere and then maybe some color or such in post – et voila!
So now I am having this whole blog post dedicated to the moon. Maybe not the most realistic moon photos, although they are, but more in an artistically, colorful way to capture the sometimes eerie feeling under a (full) moon. Though tempted to use a texture here or there, I did not in order to not distract from the moon itself. I hope you will enjoy these.
Btw, I am sure I will have that initial blog post up soon, and I am also pretty certain there will be some more moon shots in there, too. But for now on to more Sisterhood Stories: This blog post is part of the Sisterhood Stories blog circle, so please check out what story Kay of Kay Maguire Photography has on her blog for us..
