Skywatch with Shadows
Nothing to see here move along!



I remember a time when lovers sought privacy, quiet places where they could watch the stars and moon.

There's nothing like the blare of a million halon lights to get the pulse racing, and instead of stars, why not watch the lights of the apartments on Point Cartwright.

After staring at the sky for a while, they'd see nothing but red and green spheres burned into their retinas!

I know it's the second skywatch shot this year with no actual sky visible, I promise I won't do it again, but I couldn't help myself, the fear of what lurks in the shadows beyond obviously draws them to the privacy of the floodlit beach.

Contrast. Shade and shadow. I can't understand the youngsters of today either; have they no pride?

Very creative. Hitting two birds with one shot here.

i like your choice for theme day! very contemplative into the darkness.

Half the time the sky is black; half the time the sky is blue.

Lurking in the shadows is an excellent take. I like the lateral take: but I would, wouldn't I (to paraphrase MRD) ...

A super shot and I love your commentary. It's funny and thought-provoking with such a lovely image. Dunno about kids these days...

Silly you can see the sky as black as black can be. It's a brilliant combo so you post black night skies anytime. Young love will always find a spotlight.
