Sunday Stills - Moon


This weeks Sunday Stills challenge is the moon, and boy is that challenging! Most of mine come out completely blurry and look like just a tiny bright spot in the dark sky. I took the above picture the other morning at about 7 am and really like how it turned out, despite the silly electrical wires that always seem to be in the way. I like the moon hanging around in the February sky.
The picture below is blurry, but it was an incredible sight. I was leaving work and this gigantic moon seemed to be rising from the river and hanging around under the bridge. It was incredible to see.

Gorgeous! I love the photo of the moon under the bridge. Of course you know I love that bridge and the beauty it adds to photo possibilities. ~Adrienne~

Paula,

These are both excellent shots. The moon is one of the most challenging things I've ever photographed. I would like a camera with a better zoom. Mine has very little. Maybe one day.

Take care, my friend and enjoy your week.

Blessings,
Mary

I know what you mean about getting blurry outside pics - I want to get a tripbod so that my shaking hands don't mess up the picture.

Love your pictures! They turned out great ~

I saw that moon last week. It was gorgeous. I tried to get a photo of it, but didn't have any luck.

I found it very fitting that your post and your music were "moon" related! :)

I love the soft pastels of the sky and moon floating above the trees.

Hi, Paula. Monica linked us to your blog, so I've been looking around.

I love your photography! I especially love the photos of the moon. I was looking at them before I read your post and I was wondering how you did that. Then I read where you also think shooting pictures of the moon is challenging. By the way, how did you do that? Mine, too, look like blurry spots or a dot in the sky.

I love your blog. I'll be back to visit, soon.
