I had intended to go looking for the Wolf Moon tonight but it was a bit too cloudy in the east for any rising shots. So I just turned the camera westward and was rewarded with a beuatiful sunset at the Patterson Bridge. I did manage to get a generic shot of the Wolf Moon around midnight. And it still ammazes me that you can go outside with a Full Moon, open your camera shutter and still collect stars even though it looks like the middle of the day!

Stunning shots Richard especially no.3, the dark silhouette of the bridge works very well against the warm sunset colours and nice crep rays in no.4  Smiley

Another excellent collection of images Richard. 3rd and 4th down are beautiful with the rich warm colours complimenting the bridge/water scene not to the mention those rays, a truly lovely scene. Also like the nightscape with the moonlit sky and stars, even M31 is visible!. Moonlit nights are truly magical  Smiley

Thanks for the comments everyone. I finally found M 31 Martin, with the help of Stellarium. When taking the photo and looking at the sky naked eye, you really couldn't see any stars at all because the moonlight is so overpowering. Your eyes are so much younger than mine anyway, lol. Thanks.
