Moon and Clouds



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

I've enjoyed getting photographs of the moon over the past week or so. It was interesting to watch the changes in the moon as it approached becoming a full moon.

Friday night was very cloudy and overcast and I had just about decided that I wasn't going to get a picture. But just before getting ready for bed I noticed that the clouds had thinned enough to get this picture. The picture is 'moody', but I like it.

That's a great photo George. Those clouds are amazing when you enlarge the picture.

The moon is a subject for great poetry and music. I think of the "Mondschein Sonate"by Ludwig van Beethoven.
Your photo is stunning!

I love moon shots. You did a great job as usual. I have not figured out how to set my little digital for night pictures. Therefore, my moon ones are not this clear.

A great shot of the moon and clouds!!

I like it, too. I like that bit of whispy cloud over the moon. It would make a great cover for a vampire book

I like it. I think a moon picture is usually better with some clouds than with none at all.

Isn't it great that clouds did not obscure the moon? Nice photo, George!
