Catch the Moon: 100 Magnificent Moon Photos You Have Never Seen Before

The moon is at her full, and riding high,
Floods the calm fields with light.
The airs that hover in the summer sky
Are all asleep tonight

William C. Bryant

Since the beginning of the world the Moon has always attracted humans with its magic light. So many years of history had passed before the first step on the Moon was made in 1959. We used to see the Moon at night, but still it hasn’t lost its mystery in our eyes.

Have you ever noticed that near the horizon the Moon looks much larger than in the sky. It is an optical illusion. Psychological experiments have shown that an observer adjusts his or her perception of an object’s size based on the size of other objects in the visual field.

Thus, the moon appears smaller when it is high in the sky and surrounded by a large empty space. But when it is on the horizon, it is easy to compare the scale. Under the influence of this comparison, we unconsciously strengthen our impression of the Moon’s size.

As practice shows, night is not only a suitable time to have a good sleep, but is also a great time to take a few stunning shots. Here I put together 100 really magnificent Moon photos you have never seen before. Hopefully, they will inspire you to grab your camera and go for night shooting!
