“Every one is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” - Mark Twain

Reminded of Pink Floyd's 'Dark side of the Moon'

And 'The other side of Moon' -- movie I saw in 1990...

btw, Twain says 'everyone' is a moon..but later he says 'he' -- subtly pointing at me, women are far more devious than men. :)

Lovely shots..the sky in pitch black gives a clarity to the moon :)

It can be observed in humans too!

Devika said...


Twain is speaking about 'humans' only :)


Deepak: with your permission :)

Great quote! I love the moon shots. You've got some great detail on the field of black.
Regarding your comment on the Starling Sky ... that one is straight from the camera, the sky has been amazingly clear and blue but the camera meter does make it somewhat darker & I have the color setting selection on "vivid". I only have MS Picture Manager editor - it works fine for very basic editing. sorry about the long response.

How lovely! I love moon shots. And the verse from Mark Twain is so true.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments. Enjoy the weekend!

great shots of moon! it's never easy to capture the moon in photo but you did an excellent job!

You know ho impressed I was over the moon shots. I didn't even get a chance to try and match them because of the clouds, the next full moon is on the 9th of February so I'll be giving it a new shot then.

Mark Twain also said:
Every man is a moon and has a side which he turns toward nobody: you have to slip around behind if you want to see it.

I've always like how he thinks.=)

Very clear pictures! Well done!

Silly Girl said...

but love is knowing the dark side of another, and still be by his/hers side.

Lovely. My camera's not sophisticated enough to take clear moon shots, so I just have to enjoy everyone else's :)

Tabib said...

Lovely moonscape.

Gattina said...

Nice ! it's so difficult to capture the moon !

Ruth said...

That's a great quote with these images.

I have to figure out how to photograph the moon with my new camera. I was fine with the last camera. Maybe next eclipse.

Thank you for the nice visit to synchronizing in the hubbub.
