The moon in pictures by Laurent Laveder

Yesterday we saw the moon going through its monthly phases in time lapse photography.

Today let's look at the moon again but from a different perspective.

You may have tried to take pictures of the moon but, if yours turn out like mine, the moon just doesn't seem the same in the photo as it did in real life

For example, note the pitiful appearance of the moon in today's picture.  In real life it was huge and beautiful and a palm tree was bracketing it.

But, as you can see, my picture of it doesn't do it justice. What is the secret? I ask.

Well, Laurent Laveder has figured out the secret!!!

And he has taken many pictures of people 'playing with the moon'.

Several of his amazing pictures were sent to me in an email from a friend.

Alas, there is no way to 'link' to an email.

But, not to despair, I found the same pictures out there on the web.

Prepare to be amazed. HERE'S THE LINK
