I have rarely seen such a beautiful moon which presented me a wonderful opportunity to capture a little moonlight magic over Robin Hoods Bay.

This is one of my most favourite photos and I was well pleased with the result.

The deep blue tones were achieved by experimenting with the white balance..Most cameras have several options..The Pentax camera has an impressive range of settings to compensate/enhance differing light conditions!

The one I take away with me for my favourites! I've seen several moons lately in Panoramio (looks like it was very close from us and that it's not often), but none of them was feeling sooooo blue! Fantastic!!!! Cheers, Joelle
