Beautiful Moon Photography from Russia

Beautiful Moon Photography

Back in 2005, two Russian artists, Leonid Tishkov and Boris Bendikov, created their own “Private Moon” and used it to take these breathtaking photographs.

  2. Po0Ya

    Nice work!
    Especially the First one..

  3. Kid C

    Cool, definitely. I like it.

    Second to last is my favourite. Think there was greater potential than some of those executions, however.


    Very nice!!!!!

  5. Jorge

  9. dvl

    dv: the “6 end” star you refer to is still a star. The Star of David IIRC.

    In soviet Russia, Moon lands on you

  12. marleyinoc

    is moons and stars in unusual places. ok


    LMAO at the “In soviet Russia, Moon lands on you” comment. Good series, at first I thought it was an actual image of a moon. Damn it, fooled again, but it wouldn’t make much sense anyways. Then again, that’s why I clicked.

  33. fico

    que cosa mas bonita !!! wonderful!!!

  34. Will

    O’m just wondering how exactly they made the moon and star. I’m assuming this isn’t ‘shopped art. However even if it is it’s still beatiful.

  35. Muhsin

    Good Job !!

  36. grunner

    Very nice idea, and wonderful work!

  37. Chaz

    That is the most amazing use of simple shapes I have ever seen.

  38. carlos

    Technically that six pointed star is not a Mogen David. You should be able to follow a straight line from one point to a point across from it. Basically it is two equilateral triangle stacked together. If you look at this star you can follow a straight line to the midpoint between two points but there’s a slight angle to continue to the opposing point.

    Personally, if it were a Mogen David I’d probably think it was cooler (and I’m not a Jew or of Jewish ancestry – as far as I know).

  39. carlos

    Oh, and it seems odd to me in the rowboat (second image) that the guy weighs more than the moon…. even if it isn’t fulll…..

  40. Nancie

    How did you get the moon to light up? Did you use LED lights or what? I want one!!! How much?????

  41. bere

    those images are now encripted in mi mind, serious moments that shared this too… shaped blues -.-

  42. sir jorge
