Good shoot, captures the strange alure of the african sky.

I used to get the same reaction in j'bay cos I'd be out shooting every night and the locals just looked at the sky as being normal and me being wierd

This is stunning, love the fact you went portrait, catches the moon right on top of the frame and gives a good sense of depth. Very good work

Really beautifully done, and the moon is so crisp and not overexposed. Love the tall format - in fact I might even suggest cropping from the left to lose that bush and have real bookmark-format job - just a thought. Good work
