These are beautiful Moon and atmosphere captures.
Old luna in haze and clouds can provide great subject matter for sketching. Well done!

I really like these sketches, Damian. Very artistic and you capture the «atmosphere» along with them!

Keep us posting.

Excellent!!

These pictures remind me of the end of Nights in White Satin:

"Cold hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colors from our sight
Red is grey and yellow white
But we decide which is right
And which is an illusion?"
