The weather is still warm during the day, yet chilly in the evening and dewy in the morning. I love this time of the year, and marvel at the magical light show mother Nature blesses Sydney with. A few hours ago, I was driving through Lilyfield and had no choice but to park the car to capture the glorious moment.

And tonight, as I came home and parked the car, I was struck breathless by the silent show of an almost full moon rising behind the trees. How could I stay doing nothing about it, like I did not care or just pay attention? The picture below is is only a pale reflection of the beautiful reality, and fails to render the nocturnal ballet of flying foxes.

I have rendered about 150 different unique images, before choosing one close enough to the emotions I had tonight.
