WPC: The Cherry on Top

Gilded landscape

Beneath watchful Moon’s gaze

Take to the sky with vibrant wing

And soar

This post is for the Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s theme is Cherry on Top, and we’re asked to share a picture with a feature that makes a good shot even better.

Last week I was out for a walk during the golden hour when I spotted a lovely view of the moon over the wheat fields, the evening light enriching the colour of the almost ripe crop. Naturally, I stopped to photograph it.

The view was then made even more impressive when  a paraglider took off from the nearby airfield and flew right into the shot. Unfortunately I only had my 15-55mm lens out with me so couldn’t get a very good close-up, but I did the best I could.

    • Thank you! It’s my favourite time of day for taking photographs – though that’s mainly because I find it really hard to be up in time to photograph the dawn. 🙂
