Moonlit road

I never saw the stars, the fence or the shadows on the road when I shot this at 4:00 a.m. I wasn't even quite sure the photo was in focus. Part of the adventure of doing moonlit night shots is that you never know for sure what the final image will look like, if you shoot film, like I do.

I like being pleasantly surprised. Hope your weekend does that for you.
