It was a fine day on Sunday 22 Aug 2010 so our family decided to take a stroll around Cherry Lake in the afternoon for we had not been to that area for quite a while. It was very lucky that we saw the full moon clearly in the daylight sky, sometimes hidden behind the moving clouds and then reappearing. I quickly took a few shots and the camera indicated the time to be 3:57 pm. With my 4.5 megapixels camera, I could distinctly see the features on the moon’s surface. If I have a more powerful camera, the resolution will be even better.

The setting sun casted its radiance onto the trees by the lake, turning them into a brilliant golden colour. This beauty is ephemeral but mesmerizing. A pair of black swans with their brood bobbing on the water completed this almost surreal spectacle.
