Out Of This World – Cool Pictures of the Moon

xheVI

We have full moons, blue moons, harvest moons, super moons and any number of culturally relevant references to the moon. Here we showcase some of our favourite moon pictures taken by photographers over the years.

The moon is a gigantic mirror in the sky for the sun. It’s so bright that its own color and all the surrounding stars are completely washed out. This artist / photographer wanted to present the moon more along the lines of how it really is, not so much its boring, white self.

    Beautiful photoshopping. The moon being that large is an optical illusion that film does not catch.

    Actually, that’s taking the photo from a long distance while zoomed in.

    Several of those are photoshopped. You are not gonna have a full moon next to a setting sun. Same thing with the crescent moon in the mountain’s shadow, if if were real the moon would be a lot fuller than that.
