Dark Moon by ChrisAddams Dark Moon by ChrisAddams
I got stranded at work and had to walk home in the bitter cold (19 degrees F), several miles, the final half having no lights at all.

My way was lit only by the dim light of a freezing moon. When I looked up through the trees, I saw a photo waiting to happen.

Also, due to my tight schedule, I can't individually thank everyone that has checked out the photos, but seriously, to have the DD pop up on my birthday with everyone loving it; that rocked.

You guys are awesome.

If you like all that dark spooky stuff, check out my gallery. There's more doomy evil amazingness!

A delicate tracery of silhouette and shadows, a deep striking blue and the moon breaking through the night clouds. I can almost hear the wolves howling at Dark Moon by ~ChrisAddams. ( Featured by TanyaSimoneSimpson )

Hello ChrisAddams! Your work was featured in my recent journal, Obscurity. :love:

This is another photo that has been photographed so many times, but yours in
particular is outstanding! It truly has that eerie, night feeling to it. This is a
beautiful scene that I wish I could see in person! :aww:

Lovely photo. I used it to prepare the background for a little blog of poetry and short stories. If that's not OK for you, let me know and I'll remove it.

Cheers.

Simply amazing, this makes me feel like I'm being sucked in the picture and standing there myself.
The wolfs howl and snarl around as they stalk in the woods...I can hear them...but what if there's something MORE frightening that lurks in those deep, dark shadows?
I adore this piece more then I can explain; how it made my breath catch, pulse race and my swallows even harder to push down my drying throat.
