Quote: The stars the moon and the old, so wise. Think of what they've seen

This was shot on the way to the Airport. I was to join my relatives for Pongal Celebrations in the middle of the Jan when I feasted on this. At first glance, it stumped most people as to how I shot this :)

Wish you a beautiful and bright week ahead.

Too mystifying ! First thought, it is moon. But it's a lamp, isn't it ?

hey deephak what a fantastic picture of the moon,so cool, so romantic, so calm and splendid!.

I felt that this pic of the moon is taken from it's reflection on a silent pond, with dried leaves floating on it.Am I right or wrong?

Truly I just love the picture!.

Thanks Lakshmi and Sangeeta

Prithi, yes it is. Its in the approach road (specifically the arrival) leading to the airport.

Thanks a lot Shashtri and Sonson.

LH, when I first passed those series of lamps, I was grumbling about the lack of maintenance. But then I realized that the leaves, spiders and cobwebs gave a different look and feel to it. And when I first took the image, I thought that it was like the 1950s science fiction movie stills - moon with aliens (spiders) :)

Thanks Revathi. But I dont have a filter and without that I dont know whether it would be possible to get the yellow tinge in the moon. As I said in the above comments, this is just a lamp shot in the macro mode.

Romantic? Hmm. May be. I should have used this for the valentines day. Anyway thanks for the suggestion. Will reserve it for the future ;-)

Thanks LH & Enigma. It was a simple macro snap of the lamp. Though this would have been too bland if not for the leaves and the spider - I would call that as nature's choreography ;-)

A Great Photography. Amazing!! It makes us guessing what it is?? It doesn't look like a lamp. It seems as though it's a natures gift.

While you keep guessing as to what that lamp is, I keep guessing as to who this anonymous person is :)
