    WOW WOW WOW, Sis!!!! this is fantastic… i took a few pics of the moon last night… but haven’t had a chance to load them yet! Your photos are fantastic!!! man oh man, they are great!!! LOVE THEM!!

  • Thank you so very much, dear sis! I got there about 5 minutes later than I wanted because some dumb car decided to drive the speed limit in front of me! (Imagine!! LOL!). Tomorrow if the sky is clear again, I’d like to get there a bit earlier to get the reflection off the water. We’ll see!

    Fantastic, I have taken a few night images where you could see the dark blue night sky but few of them have been this good. Very well done sis.

  • Thank you so much! I took this just as dawn was breaking…the beginning of the so-called “blue hour” which helped with the exposure a bit. I tried taking last night but the moon was too bright! The moon is very hard to photograph!! Thanks again and thanks also for making this a Favorite!
