Moon Over the Glade



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

In late July we were treated to the moon and some beautiful peach-colored clouds in the sky over the Glade at sunset. After the sun dropped below the Plateau I concentrated on the moon and was pleased with the craters I captured near the moon's south pole.

That is amazing George .
You must have a terrific camera to get such a close view of the surface of the moon.

You captured this phase of the moon so well. Looks like the sky had no clouds!

We have a blue moon coming up too at the end of this month, George. I bet we see lots of shots of it when it occurs! :-) This is a really nice picture of the waxing moon!
