Things I've Been Seeing

The Moon!

I’ve struggled to take good moon shots, but last night finally succeeded in taking one that pleases me. It is posted here on my Flickr account.

Early this morning, I peered from a window and saw that the moon, now in the other side of the sky, of course, was still bright and beautiful. Slipped on a pair of shoes, and still in my robe, snagged these. I love looking at the moon.

  1. Ohhhh!!!! You did it! I’m so happy for you! These shots are great! Don’t know if you read my moon post, but I was so bummed last night because it rained! Could not see the moon. 😦

    Did you see Mars? Do you think it will be close to the same tonight? I’m going to see. I hope, hope, hope. 🙂 Love you.

  2. No, Tena, I didn’t read your moon post, but I’ll go check it out right now. Actually the moon was not quite full last night, but will be tonight. Is it still raining, or will you be able to try for shots tonight?

    I’m not sure about Mars. Where will it be in relationship to the moon?

    Love you. Miss you.

    Edit: I’ve read your post, and I guess I was wrong. Thought tonight was the full moon. Oh, well, another of my few mistakes. 🙂

    Edit again: I’m confused about the moon. Google points to lots of news stories saying Friday night was the first full moon of the year, brightest, etc….Some official sources of moon phases show the full moon as January 30th. Maybe it has to do with midnight…and the “night” covering both days. Not sure.

    Very impressive! Not just the right time, and right place, the right equipment, and the right lady running it all.

    I love you and enjoy reading what you write.

  6. Well…I did see the moon tonight and it was super bright, but I just don’t have a big enough zoom lens, so all I got was a little white ball. Lol! I looked for Mars, but didn’t see it.

    Love and miss you. 😀

    • Well, Tena, the only thing is to dig into your mad money and buy you a new lens. (What is your longest lens?) I’ve come to understand that photography is a bit of a pricey hobby. 🙂
