One evening I was going to Bronte beach, Sydney, to take photos of the sunset. I like when the sky turns blue and pink. It was high tide and a wave hit me. I was lucky that my camera didn’t get wet. So I decided that’s it, packed my camera bag and turned around to leave. A last minute check if I didn’t leave anything behind and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. The orange moon just coming up behind the ocean; a moonrise I have never seen before. Well, living in Germany, not being close to the ocean at all, I never paid attention to it. I was amazed, unpacked my bag and took this shot below. Since then I learned my lesson and check the moon calendar, so I never miss this beautiful play of nature again.

The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”
