“The Real Moon” by John Maher
The new pictures include:
- “Early Madness” by Camil Seisanu, a golden-hued shot of a seagull reaching into the ocean for a salty snack at sunrise. Camil used a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 with a 1/500s f/7.1 exposure at ISO 80 to capture this warm shot.
- “The Real Moon” by John Mayer, featured above. John says he took twenty shots before capturing this one and I say it was well worth the time to get it right. This waxing gibbous moon shows the upper three-quarters of the famed Jade Rabbit or Rabbit in the Moon, which, according to Chinese folklore, is said to be constantly at work pounding a mortar of herbs for the immortals.
- “Raindrop Rose” from David Thompson. Take a gander at this macro-shot of a red rose opening up, ensconced in tiny droplets of water which almost look like platelets of blood.
