Full Moon


Stunning lights against the darks Michael.

Another stunner from you Michael. That moonlight is wonderful.

Thank you Sarah & Heather; like the curate’s egg - good in parts ... but not all of it!

Very romantic, moonlight with such lovely, sparkly water Michael.

A. Beautiful painting Michael the moon reflections on the Wet sand looks Great.

I’m glad you decided to post it Michael, it’s a very striking scene. I love the contrasts of deep shadows and that white/pale yellow light cast by the moon.

Fabulous work

The sea really looks shimmering in the moonlight, lovely effect

Thank you Dennis and Jenny.😊

Beautiful light. Great atmosphere.

Thank you Georgiana
