Full Moon Tonight

The other night, I took some photos of the moon that was not quite full but neat looking anyway. I looked on the community calendar and it said FULL MOON tonight so I went hunting for it at dusk because we had a clear blue sky (dry) day today after yesterday's torrent of rain. I couldn't see it anywhere! What a big disappointment. I knew clouds had not moved in to cover it up and I was looking to the east. . .WELL, I didn't give up, I went out a half hour later and was rewarded with the biggest moon I ever saw!

When I downloaded the photos, I was a bit disappointed because it was just a BIG white circle in the sky. No detail, like earlier before it was full. IT was a huge moon tho. One of the photos had a mist surrounding it and another had a more solid circular area. . . I did manage to get some new shots of it tonight but think I was happier with the photos from the other day with the size/closeness of the moon in person. CLICK on to make bigger for details.

I managed a lucky moonshot tonight, too. It can be hard to get it just as you want--and of course, the clouds sometimes interfere. I used my camera with the zoom, and propped it on a post so it wouldn't wiggle.

I’m looking at this sequence backward … but this is how MY moon photos look at best … unless I shoot them during the late afternoon rather than at night.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
