Full Moon



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I snapped this picture of the full moon several months ago and promptly forgot about it. I came across it last night and decided to post it. I like the the craters that can be seen across the top of the moon.

Great shot! Wish my camera could do that.

I enlarged it twice, George! Yes, I see those crater edges at the top! It is quite impressive, you got a lot of definition and contrast here. You keep getting better at shooting for the moon!

Year ago there were lots of songs written about the moon. No more. Maybe people don't look up much these days....

I'll take a few days off and so I enjoy the nature around me... rest and relax the soul.
Up the back, sir!
A warm hug.

When you and Betsy decide to hike to New Zealand, i will make these dumplings for you.

My friends are inviting me tonight, and then I remember it is Renri. She knows I do not do a lot of things during Chinese New Year.

Carletta said...

You did a great job George!

I think I've pretty well got down how to take this kind. The just at dusk ones I'm failing miserably at capturing. :)

BlueShell said...

Just came to thank your visits.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
