  1. Someone asked me last month if I saw the “Blood Moon”, and I came to the realization that due to my schedule and direction of travel going to work, most of the time when I see the moon it’s the waning crescent. I need to take in a good full moon some time to get back in touch with my animal side… maybe I’ll just howl at your post instead!


  2. Great shots. Love the bad moon rising.


  3. They are all great, but I love the first one. It’s great and makes me want to book vacation.


  4. I envy your shots ! Just on a lighter note but seriously I mean they are so gooood ! I have not succeded to take good pictures of moon, mentioned it in my post today. I want my long lens badly !!!!


    • You have to mess around with the shot to see what comes out right. You just have to take a lot of pictures, not just one or two. Once you figure out what works with your camera, you’ll always be able to get it right. I keep telling Garry the same thing. You have to take a lot of pictures. Luckily, we don’t have to develop film!

      • I will try and share some of the pictures. I don’t know whether it would be possible with my 18105 mm lens. I am about to order a new lens by the way.


        • I’m always planning to get a new lens 🙂 Then I figure out how to use what I’ve got. But an 18-105 isn’t really long enough to shoot the moon. You need at least 250 mm, longer if possible.


          • That’s excatly I was thinking. I am planning to buy 70-200 F 2.8 One wildlife photographer of my husband suggested it to us. It is expensive man.


            • Yes, good lenses are VERY expensive. Usually more than the camera cost in the first place. Sometimes — often — it’s cheaper to buy a whole camera with a long lens then to buy just the lens. It was cheaper for me to get the Panasonic with the superzoom than to buy an equivalent lens for my Olympus. The camera was around $400. The lens for the Olympus was $1000. Big difference.

  5. Aaaarrrrroooooooooooooooooo!!


  6. I specifically asked for a camera for Christmas because I wanted to take my own full moon picture instead of having to look for one on the internet to use with a post. Now I have my camera. And there have been full moons. But every full moon has been totally covered by clouds. So, I don’t know if my little camera will work at night and for such a long shot. Sometimes I think the fates are against me.


    • Ah, yes, there’s the rub. For me, not only clouds, but trees. I’ve gotten all my good moon shots from the beach or a parking lot. That’s why I carry the camera. Because you can’t always know when the picture will be there for the taking.

  7. They are those moon shots that I have not yet had success with. Better smelling of moss than the sewers.


  8. Great shots! Even though things Moon tend to inspire me, I couldn’t get into this prompt. Except… since I posted the other day for the A to Z challenge that “W”ho I am is a mystery these days, if I did turn into the opposite at the full moon that would point to who the heck the person is the rest of the time. And that makes my head hurt.

    Back to looking at your really nice night photos.
