Magical Moonrise over the Hilltop

Posted by
Michael Skorulski (Toronto, Canada) on 29 August 2016 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

At about 2:30 in the morning the moon suddenly rose over the hilltop behind our farmhouse in Slovakia bathing the landscape in its light. I had never seen anything like this before. It was one of those wow moments when you feel privileged to be alive.
