Reaching for the Moon - Skywatch Friday

After the day's storm, the sky cleared up to see the moon.
Even the tree branches look forward to no rain and want to embrace the bright object in the sky.

My first time participating in Skywatch Friday.

Hello, a while ago that I have not come on your site. I also took pictures of the moon and the camera settings are not easy. To see at this address:

Also thank you for your reply. I took this picture with a Canon 100D, the settings have been quite difficult to achieve. I'm going to Morocco in May and hope to post some of my shots.
See you soon.


Merci également pour votre réponse. J'ai pris cette photo avec un Canon 100D, les réglages ont été assez difficiles a réaliser. Je vais au Maroc au mois de Mai et j'espère mettre en ligne quelque uns de mes clichés.
A bientôt.

welcome to Skywatch. Your moon shot is nice compared to my feeble attempts to photograph the moon. Mine are always slightly fuzzy and so awkward looking.

did you use a tripod to take this shot?

Ruby's Raiser said...

Karen, your night shots are always so amazing and inspiring. Love your caption, too. :)

London Caller said...

Not imagination. Just craziness! Ha ...

AVCr8teur said...

Christian: I look forward to your pictures from Morocco. Taking more pictures is good practice. :)

Life Ramblings: Thank you for the welcoming Skywatch message.

No tripod because it was still kind of bright outside about 6pm. Once I focused the camera on the moon, the surroundings became dark so it looks like it was taken late at night.

Ruby's Raiser: Thank you for the nice compliments!

London Caller: Full moon craziness? Are you howling?
