Moon Glow on Blue Water

During the recent full moon I wondered how to come up with something other than the traditional moon on the horizon shot. I noticed that very early in the morning, the big, setting moon was casting a reflection in the very blue water of the swimming pool. I was able to frame it between some garden plants that almost look like abstracted palm trees - perfect for Southern California.

And as I held a bouquet of dandilions to my lips, I blew with a wish to melt away the evening into a perfect dream.

The abstraction through movement tears the moon to shreds and renders it vaporous. It blasts the old romanticized cliche of "moon over water" to bits. A perfect riposte to the picture postcard! Wonderful, Jenene.
