Still life with moon and telephone wires

While driving along Highway EE in Door County, Wisconsin one morning last month, I caught sight of the moon. Trees, telephone poles and wires flew by under the seemingly stationary moon as I drove along.

I stopped. The trees stopped. The poles stopped. I paused in the stillness for a few moments before I composed the shot and pressed the shutter button. Then I got back into my car and everything started moving again.

I need to be still more often.

Just lurking?
Come out of the shadows and let yourself be known. This is national De-Lurking Week, according to paper napkin. Points of Light gets its fair share of comments, and I appreciate them all, and try my best to respond to them as they come in. But my good old site meter tells me a lot more people look on in silence. Do de-lurk and leave me a comment. Just say hello. Give a photo a thumbs up or thumbs down. Tell me how you arrived here. Whatevah.

So many times, wires are an obstruction to any picture--this is a great shot and it is based mainly on what is commonly an obstruction. Excellent eye!V

Thumbs up bro!
I'm actually one of the lucky ones to have several of James' prints on display in my home.
Excellent photos and a genuine talent.
