A Shy Wolf Moon

The moon a week ago tonight was simply perfection and beauty for those of us who were fortunate to live where cloud cover happened to be nonexistent.
While I was able to take a photo or two that were...uh...kinda good...there were others who got simply magnificent shots. Much to my chagrin...

Three of my very favorites:

Hilary - incredible photos one and all

&

Ms. Hannibal - the only way this photo could possibly be better would be if those geese were replaced by a witch or two.
It's just a magical wonderful photograph!

&

My Ms. Daryl - whose commentary is just the best read around...only to be outdone by that last of her Wolf Moon photos

  1. Gorgeous moon shot -- regardless! I do know how you feel, just when I think maybe I've learned something new -- well, everything is new, I only took up photography a little over a year ago and have a long way to go! But as I started to say, just when I think I've gotten some pretty great shots, I'll see fifty at least that are sooooo much better!! But I keep trying! Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Your shot is beautiful. Nighttime photography is difficult (and for some of us impossible); what you have here is wonderful.

    Daryl's last shot was very special indeed. There aren't many who can capture the spirit, personality and essence of a moon quite like Ms. Daryl.

    One week.

  4. It was my dream to capture this moon. Alas, it was overcast here and I am terrible at moon shots. Congratulations, you will enjoy this photo for a long time!!

  13. You're too sweet. Thank you for that.

    I loved Daryl's flirty moon, and MsHannibal's fowl play. ;) And Daryl's right. Your Sunday's moonshot was just amazing.
