In the Moonlight: Tulum, Mexico

Everything looks different in the moonlight… In Tulum the light of full moon is very special. Sometimes, when the sky is clear of cloud coverage, the moon is so bright, you can easily read by it. I like to come out at night during those times, put my camera on a tripod, and see what happens with illumination effects on my immediate surroundings if I leave the shutter open for 10 seconds, 20, 30… On the beach, on the roof tops of buildings, or in the garden. It’s also interesting to observe how the light of the moon mixes with the light of the setting sun or streetlights, and what colors are produced as a result. The image I get in the end is always surprising. And in this predictable world – I like being surprised!
