Snow Moon Setting


full moon behind clouds

I glanced out the window at 8:30 this morning, and saw the full snow moon setting. I ran to get the camera, and by the time I got outside it had begun to slip behind a cloud bank. I very nearly missed it completely!

I'm really sleepy- need to post this and hit the sack.

The moon is sometime as shy as us.

Ann said...

caught it in the nick of time. good job. I thought about going out and trying to get a shot of the moon this morning but just didn't have the energy to do it.

vanilla said...

Nice capture. This is a great photo.

Jean said...

I think this shot is more interesting!

Lin said...

I saw it rising last night in our family room window--it sure is lovely.

Nice shot, Sharky! Good Catch!

this is awesome! It is so nice to catch glimpses of nature's beauty. Thanks for the comment on my EB review. I have an ultralight, and it is has its uses, and its faults. I prefer sturdy jackets though!

enjoy this great storm!

Loretta- I did- slept for 11 hours. The previous night was short.

rainfield- well, it was being bold just seconds previous- it's a fickle friend!

Ann- I'm no good at remembering to actually go out and wait for great shots. I either catch it or not.

vanilla- it sort of looks like the moon is nestled into the cloud.

Jean- you might be right. Still, I wanted the other one too!

Lin- I was so surprised to see the full moon on that side of the house!

John- thanks for stopping by. I enjoy your adventures.

Great catch. BTW, have you heard about the rule of thirds in capturing shots to give more interest/energy on the subject? Rather than just centering it.

Sharkbytes said...

sir rob- sure, I know that rule. But sometimes I'm more interested in scientific recording than art.

I think you were fast enough...it's a beautiful photograph!

Carmen- It's like the moon is snuggled into the clouds
