Place: Cambridge city centre, near Grafton (shopping complex)
Date: 28-12-06

I’m not the person who generally uses his camera in a crowded place. But, the scene was so beautifully set-up that i couldn’t resist the moment i saw it. New Square is a narrow piece of garden which one has to cross while walking from the city centre to Grafton centre. While walking on this stretch towards Grafton centre, i just happened to lift my head skywards: clear sky, 4:30 PM, sun had set just minutes back, the south western sky was glowing in a violet-orange hue, the moon was in its ‘First Quarter’ phase.

The blot of light at the centre is the moon! To the naked eye it was very beautiful, what can i do.

Even winter has its own beauty.

>Hmm… it is difficult to match God’s natural camera!:) May be you can try using photoshop in such cases to add effects. Anyway I think these photos remind you the experience you had.

>fantastic blog in general and loved these pictures in particular. As a fellow-moon lover thought you’d appreciate another article I’d come across: More people go mad on full moon day… 🙂
