Pho­tog­ra­pher Miles walked this month:

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - News -

Be­ing out in moon­light, prefer­ably a full moon, is a won­der­ful thing. A cou­ple of weeks ago I hap­pened to be in the right place at the right time and the clouds ac­tu­ally parted for a brief while. There it was… a land­scape il­lu­mi­nated by the soft­est, clean­est light known to mankind, moon­light. Rather than strid­ing on­wards, it halted me, not out of any in­abil­ity to see, quite the op­po­site. For some rea­son it al­ways comes as a sur­prise that moon­light can be so like day­light. As a pho­tog­ra­pher and a keen chron­i­cler of light I should know the folly of my last sen­tence. For moon­light is day­light, just re­flected. In that process the light seems to be cleansed, cooled, thick­ened. Once the whole­ness of the land­scape was seen, I ten­ta­tively started to walk, rapidly in­creas­ing in con­fi­dence and speed, not once fall­ing. Moon­light lib­er­ates the night. Do it more and more, be­come noc­tur­nal.
