The moon, Earth’s natural satellite, manipulates our calendar and has always inspired poetic wonder by its phasing nature. The moon plays with our gravity, pushing and pulling it, causing the oceans’ tides to rise and fall. It is even thought to play with our mood. The moon has hills, valleys, and plains, similar to the planet we inhabit, but at the same time, it has its own world. The moon is a marker of man’s endeavors into space. Our lives are tied with the pace and path of the moon, and its mysterious beauty has never ceased to seep into our art.
The changing nature of the phasing moon makes it a very interesting subject for photographers. In this photo gallery, discover the many ways that moon photography captures La Luna, and the many ways that the face of the moon has captured PicsArtists.
