The 1-day-old moon looked rather pretty at twilight tonight, so I got my mojo on and took some photos from Castle Mound. The very visible Earthshine would have been enough to make for an interesting photo, but the conjunction with the Pleiades (Seven Sisters) seals it.
I’ve not really taken many photos in the last few months, but a spur-of-the-moment trip to Madrid was a great way to get my photo-mojo back in gear. While there were few photogenic subjects in the city, the Botanic Gardens contained a wealth of stunning visual treats. I also put together another Colour & Form montage from the Botanic Gardens .

Retiro Park, in central Madrid. A bright sunny day. Water fountains. Perfect conditions for capturing the water patterns of a jet of water, with time-frozen droplets of another fountain filling the rest of the frame.
