I like trying to capture the mood on moonlit nights. This image was from a  flyfishing vacation my brother and I take every year in Northcentral Pa. When you don't have to go to work the next day you can afford to stay up all night making sketches of the landscape as the moon works its way across the sky.
Once your eyes adjust you can see remarkably well by moonlight, enough to walk all around the park taking pictures and sketching.

Excellent Pat! This makes me feel like I'm camping and walking in the woods at night. I love the mystery and light.
