It’s been some time since I took my last moonscape photos so I thought I should give it a shot. Actually there are two reasons I decided to “return” to the moon: one the one hand when a national lockdown is in place there are less options for nature photography as the concept of “outdoor” fades out. Fortunately it is not forbidden to photograph the sky from home, neither in daytime or at night. On the other hand I bought a new long lens three months ago (Tamron 100-400) and from the very beginning I wanted to test it in moonlight.
In the previous article I posted some daylight reflections. Now it’s time for some night photos, which were taken in the same location (Bucharest, Herastrau park). Night has always been a fascinating subject for (romantic) poets and painters. So why not for photographers as well?

Until now I published various posts about landscapes: sunrise, dreamy clouds, storm clouds and others. However I haven’t revealed so far one particular landscape type that fascinates me, namely the “moonscapes”. Looking at the below pictures you will understand why the moon was such a great inspiration source for so many poets and writers.
