This photograph was taken from the balcony of an apartment I was staying in near the centre of Auckland in December 2006. I was on the 15th floor so managed to get a reasonable view of the North Shore (see the lights in the distance) and Rangitoto (extinct volcano). This shot was taken without a flash. I left the shutter open to capture as much natural light as possible, that's why the moon has such a glow around it. It was a beautiful night (not too many clouds) and as such I'm pretty pleased with the way the picture turned out.
