Tonight I Am The Goddess...

tonight I am the goddess
tonight I dance with god
together we are energy
together we are whole
we spiral with an energy 
merging into one

25th august, 21:48

we kick up clouds of stardust
and blow it down to earth
the earth-child she just smiles at us 
as we conceive our birth
we are the spiral energy
we are the precious one


we twirl amongst the star-light
and skim planets into space
the moon glows with a tenderness
as we bear our newborn race
we are the spiral energy
we are the precious one


we spin between the galaxies
and kiss each glowing sun
we breathe life into each one of us
we crumble into dust
we are the spiral energy
we are the precious one


we tumble in the atmosphere
we are the cosmic dust
we are everything and nothing
we are all and we are one
we are the precious energy
together we are whole


tonight we are the goddess
tonight we are the god
we’re in this dance together
in the rhythm of this place
we dance the spiral energy
and hold each others hand

These shots are stunning. Any hints for taking pictures of the Moon. I find she comes out either to bright or indistinct.

thanks stoneweaver... good to *see* you.
I've been working on the moon shots for a good few month & can still manage some great disasters, lol.
As the moon is very bright, you need a fast shutter speed... some compact cameras allow for manual settings and have brilliant zooms.

If not see if there is a setting for exposure bias/compensation... a clear full moon can easily go to -3 & on automatic, the camera automatically adjusts. But, each phase & any cloud calls for different settings, & cameras vary, so its a case of experimenting.

A good starting point for full moon on manual settings is f5.6 & shutter speed 1/320... too bright try 1/500 or faster... too dark try 1/200 or slower. It can vary hugely. Its hard to get the clouds & moon clearly together unless there is one across the moon to diffuse the light. A crescent moon could be 1/60 or less. It also depends how far you are zoomed in.

I think i shall have to do a post on this to explain better!

Thanks for those pointers - I have a good view here of the moon above the sea and we have some great cloud formations. Next full moon I'll have to set up my tripod and see what I can manage. I like the pictures with clouds the best as they have more atmosphere and drama. You have some really beautiful photos on here - and I totally understand your fascination with the subject - I just love looking at the moon, always have.
