The alluring scene above, replete with moonbeams, moody clouds, gently flowing water, and colorful reflections was captured along the Danube River in Hungary. While not specifically seen at twilight moonbeams are also referred to as crepuscular rays. Of course, the rays are simply lanes of moonlight unblocked by clouds. Click on image for a larger view.
