Looking up.

Barry Steven Greff Photography, Moon, Nature, Landscapes

Moonscape, Matlacha, FL 2007

And don’t forget to look up. When shooting a beautiful sea or landscape, it is very easy to become transfixed on the scene in front of you. Often times there is as good a show or better over your shoulder, or in this case, above your head.

A good example of this occurred during a shoot on the west coast of Florida. A unique place to stay north of Naples is the Bridgewater Inn (http://www.bridgewaterinn.com/index.shtml). Situated on a wooden pier stretching into the water, this boutique motel offers occupants the opportunity to fish from the deck directly outside your room. While staying there one particular night during a full moon, the clouds parted just long enough for me to get this image with an unusual cloud formation seemingly pointing skyward. This is the only composite image that I exhibit, in order to adequately reflect the exposure of both the moon and clouds.

In December of 2010, Susan Spiritus of the Susan Spiritus Gallery in Newport Beach, California (http://www.susanspiritusgallery.com/) chose this image for the Natural World exhibition at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Ft. Collins, CO. Upon conclusion of the exhibition, Moonscape was added to the Center’s Permanent Collection.
