Midnight moon in Madurai, India.

On my road trip through the colorful state of Tamil Nadu, India, we made a midnight pitstop. I had to just look up at the sky for inspiration! There was a gorgeous full moon partially illuminating the surrounding clouds. There is something humbling about the night sky that puts life in perspective.
