Photo Hunt #12 - Full Moonrise ...

Note: If you're looking for Sky Watch or Haiku Friday you'll find them below this post. Camera Critters & Smiley Saturday are at Small Reflections. My OSI Week 23: Folly posts can be found here and here. I've created a 2nd Photo Hunt (#13) for this theme at Small Reflections ... just because.

Theme: Dark
Moonrise: taken from my back yard ...
and then from my front patio ...

I am always amazed by how big the moon appears first thing and then it gets smaller so quickly.

My camera never gets a good moon shot! Well done!

Daisy said...

Those came out great! I have always wanted to take a good photo of the moon, but mine are always No Good.

We love pictures of the Moonrise. Mom keeps trying to get Dad to go to the beach to take pictures when there is a full Moon.

I love that second shot where I can see the outline of the rooftops and the trees (or were they palms?). Somehow, I half expect to see someone with a guitar on the rooftops. :-)

Not a hunter but a fan--and I like what you have here, Storyteller!

philos said...

Beautiful shot! Love the setup... Almost seemed eerie hehe

Karen said...

Wow--it makes me want to go outside tonight and PAY ATTENTION!!

Hummie said...

I love first one...why? Because of the light glimpse of the building which gives things perspective.

Sarah said...

Like Hummie, I too really love the first one. The full moon is just breathtaking. And what a still, cloudless night it appeared to be. Hummie inspired me to join you guys... mine's here: http://ssphotohunt.blogspot.com/

To all – Thanks so much for visiting and commenting on my ‘dark’ Photo Hunt: Full Moon Rise here at Sacred Ruminations. I’m a true amateur when it comes to photography … just learning that my little digital camera can do interesting things (other than point and shoot). I’m inspired by the photos I see when I visit you and other bloggers each week, and like to think I’m learning as I go. I hope you’re all having a wonderful week ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Geraldine said...

These are so tough to capture. Well done! I love night photos.

Geraldine - You’re right about that! I’ve only just learned to use the ‘zoom’ feature of my Casio Exilim and definitely need to get a tripod because holding it STILL for such shots is very challenging. I felt fortunate to capture these ‘moon’ shots. Thanks for visiting.
Hugs and blessings,
