One of the most beautiful moonlit scenes I’ve seen, close to home, featuring the Venon oak, the Alps mountains, and a few guest species 😊
The sedentariness imposed by the pandemic, combined with the luxury of living in an amazing region, is enabling me to appreciate my surrounding much better than ever before.
One of my very favorite places remains the majestic Venon oak, set on its hill against the backdrop of the Alps mountains (it already features in a few articles, in Autumn, Winter… and more will come !)
I took advantage of a very rare occasion when the full moon rises behind the tree, to enjoy a magnificent scene…
Full disclosure: I intended this photo shoot the next evening, when the alignment of the tree and the mountains was going to be even better for the scene I intended, but… that night, the sky was very cloudy and the moon was hidden. I am very happy I decided to go the day before: what was planned as a dry run turned out to be the main shooting session… I will however be back there for the next opportunities!
Even the few birds still awake at that time seemed to appreciate the serenity of the scene.
It turned out I wasn’t the only one to celebrate the full moon there 😊
As the moon kept rising, a delicate veiled formed …
… and more people came to enjoy the show.
Right there and then, our Earth really felt like a ship hurtling through space, carrying us as awed passengers…
