The Rising of the Moon, by Nilla Palmer

Nilla Palmer’s natural desire to travel and photograph many parts of the world started 27 years ago. Although her photography addiction first started with a 110mm film camera, then progressing to 35mm cameras, a photography course, which included B&W darkroom techniques, and recently digital cameras. Nilla captures whatever strikes her at a precise moment but strives for images that will etch in people’s minds. Nilla’s intent is to reveal a story through her images for an audience, which she hopes inspires and encourages people to visit far off lands. She invites everyone to enjoy her gallery and feel free to contact her with any comments.

    Moon Struck!

    Love this shot – you can ‘feel’ the calmness as you breathe in the beauty of the night.

    Absolutely amazing!

    Well done
