Moon Over the Glade

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

I've had mixed success getting pictures of the moon, but I feel pretty good about this picture that I captured on a clear night from our yard in the Glade.

I haven't been trying as long as you, but I can certainly vouch for how hard it is, especially without a long, long lens.

Good job!!!

Wonderful, George!

It is indeed a marvelous shot.
You must have taken it with a telescope lol It looks like you can almost touch it.:)

Linda said...

Well done! My attempts at capturing the moon have been unsuccessful. We have been sky-watching via live television programmes and events in the last few days, but now it's very cloudy here.

Beautiful moon picture. I wanted to take a pic last night because I read about Mars just below the rising moon but alas we had a cloud cover. Funny about moon shots---sometimes good and sometimes you wonder what the camera is doing. Yours is good. MB

This crescent is beautiful, George, and I can even see the craters.

Linda said...

Oh my gosh!! What a great job you did. I think I need to learn how to work my camera.

It is a wonderful capture. I have seen the moon looking like this but my camera would never handle it. Great shot.

Karen Xavier said...

Wow, how did you do that! It looks stunning... I have never been able to capture the moon through my lens...

Barb said...

I have a hard time with night shots - your sliver is nice and sharp. I don't like using the tripod, but with such low light, it's almost a must.

How beautiful and stark against the blackness...the crescent contrasts wonderfully. Great capture...amazing.
