Beautiful moonlit convection over the ocean at Ballintoy Harbour along the Co. Antrim coast on October 3rd 2012. This night I was hunting for moonlit cells and moonbows and succeeded in catching both during this late night shoot. There was a chance of hail showers, off-shore thunderstorms, squalls and with the near full moon rising behind me in the E it was the perfect night to get out with the camera. The crisp clean starry blue sky looked amazing around the white moonlit cloud tops with the distant lights from Portballintrae and Portrush illuminating the cell's precip core, a moonbow appeared min's after this image was taken, read the full image report from this night here. * All images are available for sale in the form of photo prints, canvas or digital files for licensing, if you are interested in a purchase simply drop me an email.
