Award Winner | Photo of the Day | January 12, 2012
This image is part of a series of images that I am currently working on. The series, when finished, would show the various phases of the moon from crescent to full moon and then back again to crescent. I am aware that this has been done already by many a photographer but just wanted to be able to do it for myself. The challenge is even greater for me as it is very difficult to get a clear sky every night up in Scotland.

Photographer: Kurien Koshy Yohannan (Edinburgh, Scotland)
Photography started off as a hobby for Kurien Koshy Yohannan but now it plays a major role in his life – so much so that he plans to slowly start making a living from it. Koshy believes there is so much beauty around us that can be captured; nature is full of beauty waiting for us to capture it, if we have the eye and receptiveness for it. Koshy intends to capture this beauty through his camera lens for all to enjoy and behold. Through his photography he would like people to appreciate the world we live in – the animal and plant life that coexist with us as well as the people and cultures that surround us – and hopes that it may provide a renewed enthusiasm for people to safeguard the beautiful planet that we call Home.
